A teenager from Middlesbrough who was repeatedly stabbed while on holiday with his family in Turkey is said to be "recovering well".
Dwayne Ward, 17, was left fighting for his life in intensive care after reportedly being stabbed more than a dozen times in the tourist resort of Marmaris.
Reports said local residents spotted the bloodied teenager lying in a garden at around 7.30am on Tuesday before he was rushed to hospital.
Carolyn Ward, the aunt of Dwayne, said he is "recovering well".
Speaking from a fancy dress shop in Middlesbrough, Mrs Ward said she was referring calls to the injured teenager's brother and sister.
But Mrs Ward, who is Dwayne's aunt by marriage, did say: "We have been told he is recovering well, thankfully."
