IT HAS been four years since young Harry Robinson witnessed a horror crash which killed a grandmother and seriously injured her two young grandchildren.

But today the impact of that terrible day is still taking its toll and the ten-year-old from Felixstowe has finally been diagnoses as suffering from post traumatic stress.

His mum, Tanya, struggled to see what was wrong with her son in the months following the horrific crash in London Road, Ipswich, in 2005, as his school work went downhill, he regularly had nightmares, and even started having epileptic fits.

Now he has finally been diagnosed he is on the way to recovery but there is still a long way to go.

Mrs Robinson said: “We don't know how long it will take him to get better.

“It isn't just the family affected by the accident. It has caused so much heartache for so many people.”
