A teenager who suffered one of the worst facial injuries her doctors have seen outside of a war zone after a horror horse riding accident has asked for the surgeon who saved her face to receive a knighthood. Emily Eccles, 15, was left with just one centimetre of skin keeping her jaw attached to the rest of her head after she smashed into a gatepost while out riding near Baslow, in Derbyshire, in August. She was taken to Sheffield Children's Hospital after finding herself on the floor and was forced to hold what remained of the bottom of her face in her own hands. Despite the severity of her injury, consultant facial reconstructive surgeon Ricardo Mohammed-Ali was able to rebuild her jaw in a five-and-a-half hour long operation.

Emily Eccles's chin and jawbone was left hanging by a 1cm thread of skin after the smash - which left her with one of the worst facial injuries doctors had seen outside a warzone. Emily was taken to Sheffield Children's Hospital after finding herself on the floor, holding what remained of the bottom of her face in her own hands. But consultant facial reconstructive surgeon Ricardo Mohammed-Ali rebuilt her face in a five-and-a-half hour long operation which was such a success that the teenager was back at school for the start of term, just a month after the accident. Now, two months on, Emily is seeing her scars fade by the day and hoping to persuade her parents to let her ride again. She explained how she had been out riding with a friend and her family when her horse was spooked by an exhaust popping on a car. The horse galloped along a country path but, after her feet came out of the stirrups and she fell to one side, her head hit a wooden post.

But she has now called for her surgeon to receive a knighthood after he miraculously rebuilt her face with stitches and three titanium plates.
