Paralysed rugby player Bryan Davies an 'amazing person'

A former rugby player who was paralysed from the neck down in a game six years ago has died.

Bryan Davies, 56, known to friends as Yogi, died at his home in Gwynedd on Friday surrounded by his family.

The hooker spent two years in hospital after the incident which happened while he was playing for Bala in April 2007.

Friend and local councillor Dilwyn Morgan said Mr Davies had been ill for some time but his "spirits remained high to the end".
