Hundreds turn out for JJ's fundraiser

Hundreds of people turned out today to raise money for a young boy who was left paralysed after a car accident.

Money from the event at the Moorthorpe Recreation Club will help buy medical equipment for two-year-old JJ Miowovska so he can come home.

He was left paralysed from the chest down after his family car collided with a stolen vehicle on the Hemsworth Bypass in March.

Here's JJ's mother, Katie and the event organiser Joseph Thomas.

The former Slovenia international defender, 46, was in charge of Maribor in his homeland, where he won the Slovenian League four times, the Cup three times and the Supercup twice. However he's struggled since moving to Sturm Graz in 2013 finishing fifth in his first season in charge and will leave with the club currently sixth in Austrian Bundesliga.

If appointed he will replace David Hockaday, who was sacked after just six games in charge at Elland Road. But will inherit a side rejuvenated under caretaker Neil Redfearn. Leeds have won three of their last four and now sit 11th in the Championship, just two points outside the playoffs.
