Injured soldier's quad bike taken


A paratrooper who lost both legs and an arm when a bomb exploded in Afghanistan has had his quad bike stolen.

Lance Corporal Tom Neathway, of Worcester, said his mother discovered it had gone after it was taken from a garage early on Wednesday.

He said the bike, valued at about £6,000, had been "massively important" to him.

L/Cpl Neathway, who has an administration role at RAF Brize Norton, was hurt by a booby trap bomb in Kajaki, Helmand Province, in July 2008.
