Paralysed driver warns "never buy part-worn tyres"

Jay Nagley

A driver paralysed from the chest down in a serious road accident has been told that the part worn tyres he bought in good faith were a major contributory factor to his near-fatal crash.

"I thought I was saving money with part worn tyres but I've paid a terrible price," said Keith Johnston, 41 from Tyne and Wear. "If I knew then what I know now, I would never have bought part worn tyres. "Unfortunately for me it's too late but I would urge other drivers to steer clear of part worn tyres and always opt for brand new ones."
