Injured jockey Graham Lee was moved closer to home to James Cook University Hospital in Middlesbrough recently.

The Grand National-winning jockey and Group 1-winning rider sustained spine and neck injuries in a fall at Newcastle two weeks ago. He was previously based at the Royal Victoria Infirmary Hospital in Newcastle.

A statement from the Injured Jockeys Fund (IJF) read, “Graham Lee has now moved to the Spinal Unit at James Cook University Hospital in Middlesborough where he will remain for the foreseeable future.

“He is no longer in ITU but remains on a ventilator, albeit this can be reduced from time to time.

“His cervical injury, which was to C3/C4, means that his movement is affected.

“His family are pleased that he is now nearer home and remain grateful for the constant support.”
