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.

Forget driverless cars - how about some jockey-less horses?

Could this be coming to a yard in Newmarket soon?

It's the latest innovation in horse racing and it has been filmed by our colleagues in Meridian.

The multi-million pound system has been years in the planning, with permission first granted back in 2014 for the horse training monorail.

The machine's inventor says it does away with the need for jockeys to train the horses and helps reduce the number of young horses being injured by riders making mistakes, and will help strengthen the thoroughbreds' muscles and bones.
