As many of you will now be aware, unfortunately, James suffered a nasty accident in the market on Wednesday.

He is currently being treated at QMC, Nottingham, and has a fractured skull, damage to his ear bones and some brain bleeding. He is receiving the best of care and is comfortable.

On behalf of his partner, Gilly, and all the directors and staff at Newark Market, we thank everyone for their good wishes and we have been overwhelmed by the kindness and support received.

Please contact Paul Gentry of Keith Miller with regards any sheep marketing queries or entries over the next few weeks. We will of course update you on James’ progress as and when appropriate to do so.
