Speedway star improving in hospital after horror crash

King's Lynn speedway star Lewis Kerr is continuing his remarkable recovery from a crash that left him critically ill in hospital.

The 25 year old had to be placed in an induced coma after the horrific incident when he was riding at Peterborough last Sunday.

Now his wife Jessie has posted pictures of him up and about in hospital saying she hopes they'll put a smile on people's faces.

A fund set up for the stricken rider has now raised around ten thousand pounds.
