Ross’s parents, Andrew and Desna have both flown to Thailand to be with their son.
Doctors said they had no choice but to amputate his leg above the knee following the accident.

Ross had taken out two separate travel insurance policies prior to going traveling, however so far only one has said they might cover some of the cost of the medical treatment.

Currently over £15,000 has been raised through a fundraising page set up on JustGiving.

Ross’s father said his family is “amazed and overwhelmed” with the support and help people are giving.
