But today, August 12, he was released from hospital and allowed to head home.

Pregnant wife Jessie posted on Facebook: “It’s official...Lewi is an Addenbrookes record breaker. We are home. So happy!

“Lewi is recovering from home with the help of specialists and time.

“We realise it’s a long, frustrating and difficult recovery for his brain to get back to normal after such a terrible trauma, but he’s in the best place to start and we have all the best help available and visits to Addenbrookes will continue.

“Please give him some time and accept my big, big thank you from us both until he is in the right place to do it himself.

“He is absolutely amazing and doing so well but the brain will take nothing but time to heal now. You have all been incredible, thank you so much. xxx”

A fundraising account in support of Mr Kerr has now raised more than £10,000.
