An ex-soldier from Pontypool says he's been overwhelmed by the support given to his sick brother. Dave Kyffin needed to raise £100,000 for a special flight to bring his brother Stuart home from Thailand.
Stuart suffered severe head injuries in a motorbike accident there three months ago and didn't have medical insurance.
He's now being treated back in Britain after generous donors gave more than £160,000 to his cause.
Hannah Thomas reports.
The family of an injured SAS soldier has raised over £160,000 to have him brought home from Thailand.
Stuart Kyffin suffered a severe brain injury when he was involved in a motorcycle crash in October, and has been in a coma ever since.
But, following a huge fundraising campaign led by Stuart's brother Dave, he was flown back to the UK.
He's currently being treated at a hospital in Hull where he's showing signs of improvement.
Dave says he couldn't have done it without the support of the British public.
