A MAN who was brain-damaged and paralysed after an attack has been able to communicate for the first time in 20 years.

Kevin Beverley, from Barnsley, South Yorkshire, was left seriously injured after an unprovoked attack in his home town two decades ago.

Now, through the use of a tablet computer, his life has been transformed as he is able to speak to his family and carers. The 55-year-old has been able to tell the staff about his likes and dislikes, as well as ask for tea.
