A mother who was almost killed with her young son in a freak accident when a sheet of metal smashed through her car windscreen has spoken of her ordeal on camera for the first time.

Katie Addison-Snart was almost scalped, but she somehow managed to steer her car to safety on the grass verge of the A1 near Grantham - and in doing so probably saved her life and her son Hugo.

She has suffered multiple injuries but she says they're both simply lucky to be alive.
