He was taken to Doncaster Royal Infirmary with his jaw broken in five places. At one point, his jawbone was sticking out into his mouth.
Mr McLeod was transferred to Rotherham District General Hospital to undergo surgery to re-build his jaw. He was released from hospital yesterday.

Mr McLeod had just returned from university in
