THE drummer for Oxford band Glass Animals says he is 'extremely lucky' after recovering from life-threatening injuries in a crash in Dublin.

Joe Seaward had to learn to walk, talk and read again after fracturing his skull in July.

The Mercury-shortlisted indie band cancelled their tour following the incident.

On Instagram, Mr Seaward thanked fans for their support and wrote: "I have always taken my body for granted, I won't anymore."
