A teenager aiming to raise £1m on a charity bike ride as a thank-you for his hospital treatment after a car crash is due to arrive in the city today.

Last April, Joe Robinson, 19, was given a three per cent chance of recovery after a car crash on the A34 which killed his best friend and fellow St Edward’s School pupil, Grace Hadman, 17.

Joe left Paris on Thursday and hopes to raise his first £20,000 for Oxford’s John Radcliffe Hospital’s neuro intensive care unit.
