      Shattered leg, broken foot, brain damage, ruptured ear drums. Yet a decade later it's tinnitus that has been the toughest to deal with for this Plymouth Royal Marine.

      "There is not enough understanding of how life-limiting tinnitus can be – the need for low background noise to distract you combined with constantly keeping yourself occupied to stop your brain focusing on the noises it's being bombarded with, it's hugely tiring."

      "Out of all my injuries this is the one that's affected me most."
