Thanks for update paul. after evening mail saying it was a 'serious' head.injury, i was a bit weary about goin back up to grizedale. gud to hear it was only a cut. I was up there day before and some.numpties were riding the new black run without ANY safety gear. them peeps will spoil it for the rest. wish him luck and speedy recovery.
Hi Paul, thanks very much for letting us know that. I wonder if you could perhaps get in touch for a follow up about how your brother is okay thanks to his helmet? I'm on 01229 840144. David Pickthall, reporter.
