Invictus hero returns with his haul of medals

An Exeter man who suffered life-changing injuries during a bomb blast in Afghanistan has returned home from the Invictus Games with seven medals.

Paul Vice is known as the 'Commando who refused to die' after having around 100 injuries in the blast in 2011. They included a broken neck, paralysis and brain injury. He was left with ongoing problems with his left leg and eventually chose to have it amputated.

Paul took part in track, cycling, swimming and volleyball events in the Florida Games for injured servicemen and women.

He is now looking forward to competing in the 2017 Invictus Games in Toronto.
