Promising ballet dancer Jack Widdowson might never fully recover from Cardiff attack

A promising teenage ballet dancer might never fully recover from a vicious attack in Cardif at the weekend. Jack Widdowson, 19, was attacked on a canal towpath in the Cardiff Bay area and is believed to have suffered serious back and neck injuries.

An apprentice dancer with the prestigious Bern:Ballett in Switzerland, Jack Widdowson was visiting his brother when the attack happened. He is one of the youngest ever dancers to be part of the Bern:Ballett group and played a lead role in a recent winter production.

Jack Widowson is in a critical condition in hospital. His iPhone was taken in the attack and so far has not been located. But even if he recovers, there are serious fears that his ballet career could be over.
