An Aberdeen man left paralysed from the neck down after a mystery incident has returned home to the city after nine months.
Jon Davie, 28, was on Charlotte Street close to his home in September when he suffered the serious injury – the cause of which remains unknown.
Police investigated but closed the case when they could not establish what happened to Jon.
The singer and guitarist with GutterGodz, well known in Aberdeen’s music scene, was taken for treatment on a specialist ward at Glasgow’s Queen Elizabeth University Hospital.
Loved ones, including his parents Lynne and Eddie, have been making the regular trip between the Granite City and Glasgow to see him.
However, Jon has now arrived back in Aberdeen – and has wasted no time returning to his old haunts.
Jon enjoyed a pint with Eddie at Drummonds on Belmont Street, where he has performed as a musician.
After hearing of his injuries, dozens of Aberdeen bands put on a three-day festival, called Jon Fest to raise more than £3,060 towards his recovery.
Jon, who is now staying at Woodend Hospital, said: “It is good to be back.
“I have had the use of an automatic wheelchair in the last few days and I’ve been trying to get out as much as possible.
“The best thing is that more of my family and friends can visit me.”
Lynne, 53, added: “I’m delighted that he’s back in familiar surroundings.
“I only live five minutes away so if he ever needs anything, I can be there to help.
“It’s such good news for us all.”
Jon said that while he has some sensation in his arms and hands, his condition has not improved much in recent months.
He was able to take part in Inter Spinal Unit Games for people with mobility difficulties in London in April.
Jon is hoping for a place at Craig Court, Milltimber, which provides care for young adults with physical disabilities.
“Now I’m back in Aberdeen, I’ve been put on the waiting list for a bed at a specialist facility and don’t know how long it will be before I can move in,” he added.
