(Evening Standard) – Tom Kerr, 28, was left lying motionless on the A12 in Romford with a shattered skull after being struck by a car as he got out of a taxi following a night out with friends. The injuries, which almost ended his life, were so severe that doctors feared he faced years of rehabilitation to regain speech and movement and live independently.

But he confounded expectations with a new job and a new house, and in July will wed the “love of his life”, Louise Groom, 27, an occupational therapist who has been his partner for 11 years. She said: “I say it’s a bit of a miracle… It’s just crazy you can go from a situation that was the worst in the world to being really happy and back to normal life. We both want people to know it’s not all bad.

“Bad things happen but there can be positives out of it. Tom has got so much motivation to get back to normal.” CONTINUE
