A cricket coach who was injured during a terrifying Pakistani gun attack, has made a flying visit to family and friends in Kent before returning to work.

Paul Farbrace, who suffered a shrapnel wound to his wrist when terrorists attacked the Sri Lankan cricket team in Lahore on March 3, arrived home in Harrietsham on Saturday evening.

Mr Farbrace spent a much-needed few days with his family before flying back to Sri Lanka on Tuesday evening.

His wife Liz said the family were really pleased to see him.

She said: "We are both very aware that people were killed and know he was very lucky, but he is fine and just really keen to get back to work."

Mr Farbrace, who is the Sri Lankan cricket team assistant coach, was travelling with the players to a game at the Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore when the attack happened.

As the team’s coach approached the stadium gunmen opened fire, killing six policemen and a driver and injuring eight of the team including 41-year-old Mr Farbrace.
