A man who was slashed across his face and body, while on a night out in Sheffield, says the Government needs to do more to tackle the rise in knife crime.

Leon Cheslett was scarred for life by 23-year-old Zak Pywell, when he stepped in to break up a fight.

"Sometimes I look in the mirror and say I am never going to look the same, that has been a big issue to me, what people think about me and getting over that step of my confidence."
