Top Gear presenter improves; moves hospital


Top Gear presenter Richard Hammond has progressed from his critical injuries suffered during a disastrous attempt at the British land speed record - he has now been moved from HDU to a general hospital ward.

Diagnosed with serious brain injuries after being admitted to Leeds General Infirmary on Thursday 21st September, the 36-year old was later transferred from Intensive Car to a High Dependancy Unit before moved to an open ward. His progress since has allowed him to be moved to a hospital closer to his home.

The BBC television programme has been put on hold pending Hammond's healthy return.

Investigators are still analysing the cause of the crash that saw the jet propelled car flip several times before becoming embedded in the ground adjacent to the airfield strip where the record attempt was taking place.
