Speedway rider Lewis Kerr has now been allowed home, after an horrific crash almost two weeks ago in Peterborough.

The accident took place on August 2nd in Heat 3 of the Final and Kerr, who was representing Newcastle, was treated at the track for more than an hour prior to leaving the venue in the air ambulance.

The meeting, at the East of England Showground, was then abandoned.

King's Lynn and Newcastle star Kerr was placed into an induced coma and airlifted to Addenbrooke's Hospital in Cambridge following the accident.

Kerr has since made remarkable strides in his recovery and has now been allowed to return to his Norfolk base.

Peterborough boss Dale Allitt said: "It is really is fantastic to see Lewis be allowed to return home to continue the terrific progress he is making.

"The medical staff at Addenbrooke's have done a fantastic job and we can't thank them enough.

"The support received from the speedway community has also been nothing short of amazing and unforgettable, both for Lewis and his wife, Jessie.

"Now is the time for Lewis to get back to full fitness in the company of his family, and with privacy."
