Hampson plans hangar rehab centre
- From the section Rugby Union
Former Leicester Tigers prop Matt Hampson tells BBC East Midlands Today about his plans to convert a disused aircraft hangar into an injury rehabilitation centre.
Hampson was left paralysed from the neck down when a scrum collapsed in a training session with the England Under-21 squad 10 years ago.
Through the Matt Hampson Foundation, he is now helping people deal with similar life-altering injuries and is in the process of building the first 'Get Busy Living!' Centre in the hangar donated to the foundation in Melton Mowbray, Leicestershire.
