Hero PC left paralysed in Westminster Bridge attack to get back home with help of DIY SOS

A Police Officer who was left paralysed after the Westminster Bridge Attack is going to be returning home and having his home renovated so he can finally leave the hospital.

The DIY SOS Production team contacted Police Hour to set the ball rolling after our readers raised £10K for PC Kris Aves to help him with his rehabilitation.

The BBC Contacted Police Hour as a result of our appeal to raise money to support Kris Aves, his partner and his children.

And now we are delighted to confirm that the renovation is going ahead.

PC Kris Aves suffered a spinal cord injury when terrorist Khalid Masood ploughed into him with a car back in March 2017.

PC Aves was walking across the bridge with his fellow colleagues PC Roger Smith and PC Bradley Bryant, on March 22  after being honoured for their bravery.

Six months later, PC Aves, still remains at Stoke Mandeville Hospital in Buckinghamshire with his injury leaving him unable to get around his East Barnet Home.

After contacting Police Hour following our appeal which raised £10K, DIY SOS have confirmed they are going to install a lift, widen doors ensuring a wheelchair can fit through.

DIY SOS will ensure that PC Aves can be home with his daughter aged four, his son aged six and his partner something which he would be extremely grateful for.

Following the incident in Westminster Police Hour readers pooled together and we successfully raised over £10K which will support PC Aves and his lovely family.
