Toole riding to recovery after fall

Jump jockey Peter Toole is about to return home to Ireland after nearly two years of rehabilitation following a fall at Aintree's Grand National meeting which left him in a coma.

Toole was left fighting for his life in April 2011 but has slowly recovered to the stage where he can now ride out on horses and school them over obstacles.

In October 2012, he told BBC South Today of his rehabilitation and how being around racehorses, and the support of the Injured Jockeys Fund, had helped rebuild his life.
