He is having intensive physiotherapy sessions and going to the gym five times a week to build up his strength with the help of his friends and family.

Jonathan Brown has the story.

David is one of the bravest people I have ever met and, with additional support, I believe he could achieve so much more, which would make a huge difference to his life as well as his family.
