THREE months after a man was left seriously injured after being hit by a van, his father has renewed an appeal for the driver to come forward.

John Conibeer, 32, was left in a coma after he was hit by a Ford Transit van on the A48 near Pwllmeyric in the early hours of February 17.

Gwent Police have issued an appeal to trace the driver of the van.

Since the crash, Mr Conibeer has undergone 48 hours of operations.

His father, Tony, said he is still recovering and is due to have another operation in around six months.

He said: "John is up and about at the moment.

"The doctors are saying he could be out in a few weeks but the social services are saying he is not ready at the moment.

"He is not fit enough yet and he gets tired quickly."
