Richard Hammond Suffers “Significant Brain Injury”

Doctors at the hospital in Leeds said they were “reasonably optimistic” he would make a good recovery.

Hammond’s father, Alan, is looking after the presenter’s two daughters. He told the Evening Standard newspaper he was “just hoping Richard pulls through”.

He added “At the moment we are not sure if he is going to live or die. His children are very confused,”

He was also visited by Top Gear co-hosts Jeremy Clarkson and James May. Referring to Hammond by his nickname, Clarkson said in statement: “Both James and I are looking forward to getting our ‘hamster’ back.”

The BBC said in a statement that it had begun an investigation into the accident and promised full co-operation with the HSE.

Come on Hamster!
