Residents said the victim was sat in a grey Seat Leon when he was attacked by ‘five or six’ masked men who reportedly jumped out another car armed with either knives or machetes.

One man, who used to live nearby, said: “I’m not surprised it is like that round here. It isn’t bad – you aren’t scared to walk to the shop but I’m still not surprised. 

“People don’t get chopped up for nothing.”

Another resident added: “It happens around here but normally further down the estate not this close.”
