My daughter Angel was paralysed unable to speak after Ex kidnapped her she’s uttered her first word

The mum of a girl left brain damaged by her thug ex in a horror kidnapping today revealed she has spoken her first word.

Angel Lynn, then 19, fell from a van at 60mph after being snatched by Chay Bowskill, who was filmed grabbing her "like a rag doll".

She now requires 24-hour care and was left unable to communicate, walk or feed herself.

Her mum Nikki Lynn told Good Morning Britain how she feared her daughter would never be able to speak again following the horror in September 2020.

But brave Angel suddenly managed to say the word "mum" after three years of silence, with Nikki managing to capture the moving moment on video.

Nikki said: "She said it the first time and I just couldn't believe it. I thought I've got to get it on camera, because sometimes she doesn't always do things a second time.

"I asked her to do it again and she did it straight away."

The mum explained how Angel was "groaning" in hospital so Nikki told her she must be able to "say something".

She added: "That's when I started making sounds myself and it just came out.

"I had no warning or anything […] because I thought she'd never speak again. You don't like to get your hopes up."

Chilling footage showed Bowskill chase down Angel, now 22, after she walked away during an argument.

He then grabbed her from behind in a bear hug and bundled her into his van.

As it travelled along the road at 60mph, Angel fell out of the vehicle.

She was discovered lying in the carriageway of the A6 near Loughborough, Leics, on September 27, 2020, with catastrophic injuries.

Angel, who suffered a fractured skull and brain injuries, may never make a full recovery.

Bowskill was originally jailed for a total of seven and a half years - but would have served just half that sentence behind bars.

His sentence was more than doubled in March last year to 16 years and three months by Court of Appeal judges.

Angel's family, who were forced to to adapt their home so she can move back in, had backed calls for the case to be sent to the top court.

Bowskill, 20, and his friend Rocco Sansome, 20, both denied kidnap but were found guilty following a trial.

He was also convicted of coercive and controlling behaviour and perverting the course of justice - but was cleared of causing grievous bodily harm.
