Dad Darren left paralysed after eating undercooked pork chop
Father of two Darren Ashall was left paralysed in intensive care after eating an undercooked pork chop.
The 46-year-old is still in hospital almost five months after falling ill and must learn how to walk again.
But he was told he was lucky to be alive after eating the chop infected with the listeria meningitis bug, which attacked his immune system and caused a brain abscess. It can lie dormant for up to 70 days.
