A keen footballer whose life was changed forever in a hit and run 12 months ago has kept his promise to walk down the aisle with his new bride.
Shaun Whiter had both legs amputated after the crash at Newmarket in July 2016. He had been helping friend Joey Abbs change a tyre at the side of the road.
On Friday, Mr Whiter married girlfriend Charlotte Way at a private ceremony in a village in Suffolk.
The 28-year-old - who hopes to become a Paralympian - challenged himself to walk down the aisle. And he did not disappoint.
This photograph, by Thomas Ellwood, captured the moment he walked alongside Charlotte through the church - with a massive smile on his face.
