A FATHER-OF-THREE who filmed the shocking accident which led to him losing his leg has watched the footage back for the first time.

Former freelance cameraman Noel Greaves-Lord, 52, of St Michael’s Road, Worthing, was shooting footage in Cannes, France, in 2010, for a friend’s website when a motorcyclist lost control of his bike and crashed into him.

The impact broke Noel’s right leg in numerous places.

“I heard a horrible metal crunching sound and the bike was pretty much on top of me,” said Noel. “It was a split second between him coming off and the bike hitting me.”
