Ben Parkinson to sue Army over 'broken promises'

Ben Parkinson

Ben Parkinson, Britain's most seriously injured soldier, is to sue the Army over his medical care.

Ben, from Doncaster, is still a serving soldier - he survived some of the worst-ever battlefield injuries in Afghanistan. The Lance Bombardier is still making a remarkable recovery.

But he and his family have faced an ongoing battle with the Ministry of Defence over the funding of his round-the-clock care. His mother, Diane, said they are now bringing legal action over years of 'broken promises.'
