But the boy's family said that he returned home from hospital on Wednesday and is continuing his recovery at home.

His dad, Kevin Ronald, told the Post: "He's on the mend and doing OK.

"He suffered from concussion, a deep laceration to his forehead which he had glued, a swollen blackeye with gravel grazes on his face, and cuts and bruises on his hands and knee.

"But luckily, no serious head trauma, breaks or fractures. He's going to be fine, thank God.

"He still can't remember the incident though. The last thing he can remember is coming out of Farington Park on his BMX.

"Thanks to all those who were on scene and assisted. We are so blessed that he's OK.

"He certainly has somebody watching over him."

Stanifield Lane was closed for more than an hour between the junctions with Lydiate Lane and the A582 roundabout towards Lostock Hall.
