The family of holiday stabbing victim Callum Copson are waiting and hoping for a date, hopefully soon, when he can come home to Kennoway.

Callum was severely injured in an incident on June 18 in the Turkish resort of Marmaris, where he was on holiday with his girlfriend, Erin Brown (pictured right with him).

The 20-year-old suffered a stab wound to the stomach during an incident in a shop and had to undergo complicated life-saving surgery.

This week, his sister Rebecca said he was out of intensive care and the family was awaiting the all-clear for him to return, although they did not know when that would be.

“We are basically just waiting to see when he can get home,” she said. “He is out of ICU now, which is good.”

Their mum Lorraine has had to return home but dad Eric is still out in Turkey with his son.

Rebecca (22) said the support from family and friends had been “great” and had brought everyone together.

Last week, the Turkish Ministry of Tourism and Culture confirmed Callum had responded well to treatment.

It sent its best wishes for his “speedy recovery”, adding: “The chief suspect has been arrested and is currently under custody, while a full investigation is under way.”
