Accident prone fundraiser in MRI scanner campaign

An accident prone Somerset man is pitching in to raise some of the £1m needed for a third MRI scanner at Musgrove Park Hospital, after making use of the equipment.

Jeremy Minchin was flown back from Kathmandu to use the scanner after almost dying following a dramatic paragliding accident in 2011.

More recently, he was thrown from and subsequently trampled on by a horse in November.

He says given the amount of use he's had from scanners it seemed "entirely logical, natural and sensible" to do what he could to help.
