FOLLOWING his crash at Workington on Saturday evening Dan Bewley has now had all of his currently planned operations and is now recovering well in Carlisle Infirmary.

The doctors have reported that they are very pleased with how everything went.

His injuries can now be confirmed as a broken left femur (in five places), a broken upper right arm and a broken left wrist.

After being in theatre for seven hours on Sunday he has been ‘pinned and plated’ and the doctors are looking to get him up on his feet for the first time within the next 24 hours.

A Workington Speedway spokesman said: “Dan’s spirits remain high and he thanks everyone for their messages of support.

“Again, we repeat, that Dan’s family have politely asked that although everyone is obviously concerned as to Dan’s welfare, which is greatly appreciated, that they refrain from contacting the hospital to enquire about his condition.

“We have spoken with Dan’s family, who have promised to keep us updated at regular intervals and we will bring further updates on his condition when we have them.

“On behalf of Dan and his family we thank-you all for your continued support.”
