A TEENAGER has been left paralysed after diving into a shallow swimming pool.

Tristan Green, 18, of Prettygate, Colchester, suffered terrible injuries jumping into 4ft of water.

He has only been able to wiggle his left toe and move his right foot.

Family and friends are travelling hundreds of miles a week to visit the former Alderman Blaxill School pupil in hospital.

Dad James Green: “I look at pictures of me and him playing football and break down.”
