The estranged wife of paralysed former motorbike stunt rider Eddie Kidd has pleaded guilty to assaulting him - days before she was due to stand trial.
Mr Kidd - who was paralysed and brain-damaged when a stunt went wrong in August 1996 - received an OBE last year for services to charitable giving. He carried the Olympic torch through Lewes on July 17 2012.
