SUPERBIKES star Stuart Easton is set to return to Scotland next week as he continues his recovery from an horrific accident less than a month ago.

Easton has been treated at Belfast Royal Victoria Hospital since the smash in the North West 200 in May which left him with broken legs, pelvis and fingers and a ruptured bowel.

He said: “I’m starting to feel more comfortable, my appetite is starting to come back and they will be airlifting me to an Edinburgh hospital from here in Belfast, early next week.

“I’d actually be happy enough staying here the surgeon who did the work is close by but being back home and seeing my family will be great.” MSS Colchester Kawasaki team owner Nick Morgan added: “Stuart has definitely turned a corner and although he has a massive amount of work to do to get fit, he’s a real fighter and the care has been superb.”
