Colin Shields is on the brink of representing his country at a sport he loves, something that would have been inconceivable seven years ago when an accident at work left him paralysed.

The 37-year-old has a spinal cord injury that leaves him reliant on a motorised wheelchair.

His job had included winter gritting and he was carrying out routine maintenance on the truck shortly before New Year. Shields recalls how he slipped, fell off the side of the vehicle and landed on his head, breaking his neck.
