Paul said: "I sat on the wall of the car park to Iceland. That's the last I remember."I woke up with three men around me covered in blood. They said they found me unconscious. The next thing I knew I'm in an ambulance."I had to have about 16 stitches in my head. I must have fallen off the wall onto the car park."

He added: "If anyone knows who saved my life, please come forward."I'm on blood thinners so they couldn't stop the bleeding. One of the men wrapped his coat and jumper around me to stem the flow and the others rang the ambulance. I would really like to thank them."
