Father-of-four Mark Tamlin, 39, was looking forward to spending the Christmas with his family and gave his oldest son a new hands free “swegway” device.

But when 12-year-old Owen Daniel opened the smart balance wheel - one of the must-have gifts of the year - he found it didn’t work properly. Mark, of Chessington, Surrey, gave it a go himself and ended up hitting his head and suffered concussion - and now can’t remember Christmas.
