Shane remains in the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital under observation for a range of injuries. The BSB Medical Team have been liaising closely with Shane’s family and the hospital regarding his condition. A surgical procedure to stabilise spinal fractures is planned for the beginning of next week, with treatment for other injuries planned thereafter. Further updates will be provided post surgery.

According to a post by Shanes wife, his operation today was successful and his spine is safe but he has a long recovery for his neck and breast bone to heal.

To be honest Barry, I hope he decides to call it a day. Nowt else to prove at BSB and quite a popular pundit when called upon. I think he realises, although an extensive list of injuries, he has got away with one here. When a doc asks why aren't you paralised, you know you got lucky.
