Young man walks for first time following hammer attack

A young lad who was left with horrific injuries which resembled the scene if a horror film has taken his first unaided steps since he was attacked.

Ben Maycock was attacked with a hammer four years ago which left a massive hammer shape in hid head.

Ben who is now aged 21 has now walked for the first time without assistance of others, after the attack which left him in a three week coma four years ago.

Ben has spent the last four years of his life in a wheelchair following the brutal attack in which doctors had to cut away his skull to save his life.
