A police officer who was knocked down by a hit and run driver and left for dead at the side of the road, has been making a remarkable recovery.

Dicky Coetzee was nicknamed robo-cop because of his high arrest rate.

Now, with the support of his family, he is working to recover from the brain injury he suffered a year ago.

John Maguire went to meet him.
