Ex-Sky TV worker Kate Clayton is fighting for her life after being involved in a car crash on the island of Grand Cayman in the Caribbean.

Thirty-year-old Clayton, who moved to the Caymans in December 2013 to become a diving instructor, has been left in a coma after suffering severe injuries when she lost control of her 4x4 Jeep Wrangler when driving home at night time, swerving off the road at a tight corner and crashing headfirst into a tree. She broke her neck and her pelvis in the accident and has also been left with serious back injuries, although her condition has been described as stable.

Friends said that Clayton, who is from Southampton, had been at one of the Grand Cayman’s popular restaurants/bars earlier in the evening, before driving home at around 21:30. She moved to the Caribbean island, popular among British expats, after quitting her job as an analyst with Sky in December 2013. Since relocating to the other side of the Atlantic she has been working as a dive instructor for Tortuga Divers.

Her father, Bill, is believed to have travelled out to be with her at George Town Hospital, where she was taken immediately after the crash. Doctors have said she remains in a critical condition but is stable.
Police officers from Bodden Town Police Station are investigating the incident.
