Knife crime victim says the attack changed his life

A knife crime victim who was given a 1% chance of survival after being stabbed, says the attack has completely changed his life.

Wanting to be known only as George, he's now supporting the police's latest knife amnesty which begins next week.

George was stabbed last year in Lenton on his way home from a night out.

His attacker pleaded guilty to causing GBH with intent and was jailed for 11 years and four months last year.

The attack was so severe doctors had to remove his spleen, almost all of his pancreas and a third of his liver. He was in hospital for four months recovering.

The family is supporting a knife amnesty in Nottingham where weapons can be left anonymously around the city centre.
