A pedestrian who was left unable to speak or walk when he was hit by a car has been awarded a multi-million pound payout.

James Sedge was catastrophically injured in the collision in Sheerness High Street, Kent, in 2006.

His family has now received a "landmark" £9.1m payout from the driver's insurance company.

Jane Witherspoon spoke to Mr Sedge's mother, Yolanda Skinner, and the family's solicitor, Richard Crabtree.
