Nearly one year ago, a brave police officer faced the most terrifying ordeal of his life when he was caught up in the Westminster Bridge terrorist attack.

PC Kris Aves, who lives in Barnet, sustained series injuries including broken legs, a lacerated elbow, and numerous head injuries when he was mowed down by a speeding car in the centre of London on March 22. His colleague, PC Keith Palmer, was one of five people killed in the attack.

The 35-year-old father of two spent eight days in a coma before spending months recovering at the Stoke Mandeville hospital in Aylesbury.

Now the policeman, who has been left wheelchair-bound, is ready to return to his newly modified home after a makeover by television show DIY SOS.

Presenter Nick Knowles urged members of the public to get in touch to help with the makeover and more than 900 people did.

In nine days, the Big Build was complete and fit for PC Aves to return home.

His modified home now includes a lift and a downstairs bathroom. The kitchen has also been changed.

Without the big changes, PC Aves would not have been able to go home.

When he was shown his new house for the first time, he said: "I'm not normally lost for words but this is amazing."

He could not hide his emotions as he was given a tour of the rest of his home.

"What these guys have done to my house has made me able to come home to my family. All I can say is thank you very much. It's a really special day."
