I gather Dan is out of hospital now - no word on how he is doing though - best wishes for a full and speedy recovery!

As some of you maybe interested following the accident in Weymouth, with regards to Dan he is indeed out of hospital now and recovering well at home. He has had a few operations on his back etc, but he is up and walking about slowly, although painfull so well on his way to a good recovery. I will be seeing him over the weekend so will be able to update you more early next week if people want me too....
