Whilst on holiday in Scotland I was the victim of an unprovoked attack by two of a group of four men.

My assailants knocked me to the ground, kicked and stamped on my head.

As a result of the attack I had a reaction relating to my Epilepsy and my heart stopped three times. I was given CPR at the scene, twice by one of the men and later by the police.

The attack was witnessed by three people. Paramedics took me to hospital and I was later transferred to another hospital. I needed three surgeries in the space of three weeks.
