SUFFOLK man Paul White was today awarded £6.8 million damages after sustaining catastrophic injuries in a car crash six years ago.

The 26-year-old, from Woodbridge, was a passenger in a car which crashed at Foxhall in May 2000.

He suffered serious injuries which led doctors to believe at one stage that he would be in a minimally conscious state for the rest of his life.

However thanks to the love and care of his family, he has emerged to be: “Happy, alert and responsive

most of the time,” said Mr Justice Simon at the High Court today.

Mr White sued the driver of the car, Hugh Eastman of Haughgate in Woodbridge.
