A feature on BBC1 Look North covers brain injury survivor Paul Spence's determination to increase the services available to people with brain injury in the Hull area

Paul, 34 and from Hull, fell victim to an unprovoked attack while out drinking with friends in April 2012. A single moment of thoughtless violence left Paul in a coma for six weeks, and changed the course of his entire future in the space of just a few seconds.

Following intensive rehabilitation and a lot of determined effort, Paul has made excellent progress in his recovery, however he still experiences ongoing effects of the injury. He is determined to be a voice for others living with a brain injury, who can't explain how difficult and challenging the condition can be.

Now Paul has pledged to open a community centre in the Hull area to offer support to others with brain injury.
