Bryan Ferry's son has walked for the first time since he cheated death in a horrific car crash in December (14).

The Roxy Music singer's youngest son Merlin suffered life-threatening injuries in the accident shortly before Christmas (25Dec14), and subsequently underwent a number of operations.

At the beginning of January (15), Ferry confirmed Merlin was no longer in danger but faces a long recovery, and his eldest brother, Otis, has now taken to Twitter.com to share a picture of the 24 year old taking his first steps since the accident.

In the snap, Merlin is seen walking with the aid to crutches to the hospital canteen, and Otis added in a caption, "Merlin's first steps after a month in Qe hospital (Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham). Nothing like a delicious curry for motivation! Thank you to all."
