Crowds turned out to welcome home Chapel St Leonards teenager Ryan Smith.
Family and friends cheered as Ryan arrived home for the first time since he was seriously injured after a collision with a van while on a cycle last July.
Ryan was not wearing a safety helmet at the time.
Crowds waited expectantly for the arrival of the 17-year-old who returned by ambulance from the Children’s Trust rehabilitation unit in Surrey.
You can watch a video of his homecoming.
