he came round be­cause he recog­nised me.

“That was the main thing – he said my name and he re­mem re­mem­bered us all. It was quite emo emo­tional. I know he’s feel­ing bet bet­ter be­cause he’s got his sense of hu­mour back.”

Mrs Morton had not let her chil­dren see their dad while he was un­con­scious and af­ter he woke up it took a while for the young young­sters to get used to see­ing him con­nected to wires and tubes, she said.

Af­ter be­ing brought round from an in­duced coma Mr Mor Morton re­mained in hos­pi­tal – first King’s Col­lege in Lon­don and later Kent and Can­ter­bury – for just over a week be­fore be­ing al­lowed home at the begin­ning of the month.

Mr Morton was on his way back from a friend’s house in Great­stone, Rom­ney Marsh, just af­ter 5am on Fri­day, July 4, when wit­nesses told po­lice he had an ar­gu­ment with two men in a sil­ver Vaux­hall Vec­tra on a round­about in Vi­o­let Way, Kingsnorth.

The cou­ple were told po­lice viewed CCTV at a nearby house but it did not show the at­tack.

Mrs Morton said a man stayed with her hus­band un­til an am­bu­lance ar­rived.

Po­lice spokesman Adam West­garth said in­quiries into the at­tack were on­go­ing. Of­fi­cers in­ves­ti­gat­ing the as­sault are keen to speak to Joseph White, pic­tured.

Po­lice re­leased a state­ment on Tues­day say­ing: “Joseph White is wanted in con­nec­tion with a re­ported as­sault in Ash­ford, which hap­pened on July 4. A man in his 30s suf­fered a head in­jury close to the Vi­o­let Way miniround­about.”

Any­one who recog­nises White or knows his where­abouts should call 101, quot­ing Most Wanted and ref­er­ence ZY/21905/14, or con­tact Kent Crimestop­pers anony­mously on 0800 555 111.
