The bike crash which made me forget English

A cyclist is left confused after a crash causes her to lose the ability to speak English.

Hannah Jenkins was cycling in her local park when she collided with another cyclist and fell-off her bike.

She sustained a serious head injury and was rushed to hospital in a critical condition.

But when she woke up, she was confused to discover no-one spoke the same language as her - and later discovered the crash had caused her brain to erase English.

Presented by Beth Rose. A full transcript is available below.
