Musician Colin Vearncombe, known as Black, will need “a miracle” if he is to pull out of a coma after a car accident in Ireland, his management has said.

The singer, 53, from Liverpool, who had a global hit in 1987 with Wonderful Life, suffered swelling on his brain after sustaining a serious head injury in a crash on Sunday 10 January near Cork Airport.

He has been in intensive care since the crash which occurred as he drove on his own from his home in Schull, west Cork, to catch a flight to Edinburgh for a songwriting trip.

His management said Black’s wife Camilla and three sons, who have been at his bedside, were hoping people would send positive energy.
