THE most badly injured survivor of 7/7 has won his battle to get an adapted car thanks to The Sun on Sunday.
Dan Biddle lost both legs, an eye and his spleen in the terror attack.
Motability, the charity that provides adapted cars for the disabled, could not find one suitable for his needs.
But after we revealed the problem in April, Motability did all it could to supply one.
Yesterday The Sun on Sunday put the cherry on the cake, settling the £1,800 down payment on a Skoda Superb. Dan said: “I can’t believe it. It’s important I have my freedom and a car is a big part of that. I can’t wait to get behind the wheel and go for a proper drive.”
Last week Dan visited White Dove Skoda and Seat in Cardiff to look for possible cars.
He found the Skoda would be perfect for him to be able to get around and fit his wheelchair in the spacious boot.
Dan added: “Everyone there did everything to make sure I could get a proper feel for it.
“Motability have bent over backwards to help as well. But it wouldn’t have got sorted without The Sun on Sunday’s help. I cannot thank you enough.”
Dan, from Abergavenny, South Wales, was on the Edgware Road Tube train during the London suicide blasts that killed 52 on July 7, 2005.
