War hero Rick Clement who lost both legs when he stepped on a bomb in Afghanistan showed British Bulldog fighting spirit after defying the odds to walk again. See Ross Parry copy RPYREBUILD : Sgt Rick Clement lost both his legs, suffered horrendous internal injuries that mean he can never become a dad, and almost lost his right arm when the Taliban bomb exploded five years ago. Now his gruelling journey, which saw him lay a wreath unaided on Remembrance Sunday, will be told in an hour-long documentary today (Mon). Speaking after his incredible feat on Remembrance Sunday, Rick, of Blackpool, Lancs., said: “Today has been very emotional and there’s been lots of difficult moments along the way but I never had any doubts I would do it because I’d set my mind on it. But today is not about me it is about people coming together to remember those we have lost, those that fought and those that are still fighting for our country.”
