Do you know where this man is?
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.
