A Royston man who has been in an induced coma in an Australian hospital for over two weeks finally woke up today.

Conrad Wellstead, 24, of Poplar close, has been in intensive care in the Royal Brisbane Hospital since falling at Rainbow Beach in Queensland over two weeks ago.

This morning his parents Michael and Stephanie Wellstead were at his bedside when he woke for the first time since doctors put him into an induced coma following the accident.

The good news was immediately relayed in a phone call to his sister Melanie at their Royston home who said this morning: "Good news today. Conrad woke himself and took his own tube out so he is now breathing on his own.

"He has even been talking. These are very early stages but they are all very good signs.
