Tasmanian government to fund injured woman's return home

A woman from Chorley, Lancashire who suffered severe personal injuries in a quad bike accident in Australia, is set to return home with the help of the Tasmanian Workers' Compensation Scheme.

The 23-year-old had been involved in the quad bike accident while working on a dairy farm on King Island in Tasmania. Due to the severity of her personal injuries she has been in a coma since the incident took place in December last year.

Despite still being in a coma, the hospital has told the young woman's family that her condition is stable enough for her to come home.

Her return journey from Australia has reportedly cost the family around £100,000 and will see her land in Heathrow where she will be transported to Royal Preston Hospital by ambulance.

Since the accident took place friends and family of the young woman set up a fund to support her and have so far raised more than £16,000. This, along with help from the Tasmanian Workers' Compensation Scheme, has made it possible for the girl to return to England to be with her family.
