Pioneering treatment reshaped fall victim's head

A man whose skull was partly removed after falling 8m from a drainpipe has undergone a pioneering procedure to reshape his head.

Tim Barter suffered a brain haemorrhage, fractured cheekbone and a shattered eye socket.

He was in a coma for 10 days after the fall three years ago.

He and his surgeon Rob Bentley spoke to the BBC about the operation and the accident that led to it.
