"Twelve and a half hours after
being wheeled down to theatre for major surgery to remove a tumour
from his spine, Stuart Townsend was finally reunited with his

the 32-year-old father of three the youngest temporary resident of
a recently reconfigured Worcestershire County Council run
rehabilitation centre in Worcester."
