A boy who sustained serious head injuries when he was knocked down by a van in East Lothian has woken from his coma.
Harry Davies, 11, from Pencaitland, was in a medically-induced coma for two weeks at The Royal Hospital for Sick Children in Edinburgh.
He was knocked down by a van on the B6363 Boggs Holdings road on 3 June.
His mother Lisa Davies told the BBC Scotland news website that he had been "making everybody laugh".
Mrs Davies said he was doing "really well" and recognised his family and friends.
She expressed her thanks to thank staff in the intensive care unit and ward seven at the hospital.
Harry had been riding his friend's bike along the road, which does not have a pavement, when he was struck by the van.
Mrs Davies said: "Fortunately he is very safety-conscious and always wears a helmet. It saved his life, really."
A spokesman for Police Scotland said no-one had been charged in relation to the incident.
