Bike accident patient Ryan Smith returns home

A teenager who suffered a serious brain injury when he was knocked off his bike a year ago has recovered enough to go back to his home in Lincolnshire.

Ryan Smith was not wearing a helmet when he collided with a van while cycling to work. He was so badly injured that his family were told to prepare for the worst.

Since then, his family have campaigned tirelessly to encourage the use of cycle helmets.

Graham Satchell reports.
