A survivor of the Manchester Arena attack has defied medical experts who told him he would never walk again.
Martin Hibbert, who was the closest casualty to the bomb blast to survive, suffered 22 shrapnel wounds.
The dad, from Bolton, was left paralysed from the waist down.
However, after brain-training treatment in Australia, he has been able to stand up to kiss his wife after regaining some movement in his legs.
“I’ve not kissed her stood up in over two years and we had a dance,” Mr Hibbert said.
“Even my spinal consultant is blown away as I shouldn’t be able to do that.
“It felt amazing… but because I’ve been sat down for so long, my body almost goes into vertigo and I have to get a bucket.”
