A British judo star critically injured in a motorbike accident in Vietnam has spoken of her desire to compete in future Commonwealth and Olympic Games.

Stephanie Inglis, from Inverness, was given a 1% chance of survival following the horror accident in May.

The 27-year-old was in June flown home to Scotland, where she is continuing her recovery from the serious head injuries she sustained.

Inglis said she would not rule out taking part in the Olympics in Japan in four years' time.

"Judo is not in the next Commonwealth Games, but it is in the 2022 (Commonwealth Games), so I'd love to be back in time for that," she added.
