A serviceman who was the victim of an attempted abduction at RAF Marham in Norfolk says his world has been turned upside down.

The victim, who's in his 20s, was approached by two men "of middle Eastern appearance" while he was out jogging on Squires Hill in July.

He was then threatened with a knife before the men got away in a car, believed to be a dark coloured people carrier.

This whole event has turned my world upside down. The outcome could have been a lot more severe, but it's the 'what ifs' you know, not being able to see my wife again, not being able to see my family again.

And I knew what I had to do to get away. I was fighting for my life. I won't let this stop me from doing things I need to do, but it does affect you emotionally.

Public appeals and the release of e-fit images of the suspects, resulted in more than 500 calls from the public, but no arrests have yet been made.
