Walking out of a bar in Newcastle one night when I was punched hard off guard and knocked to the ground. I got back up to face the attacker. I was punched again but this time twice. I tried to make a run for it but collapsed to the ground banging my head in the process. Lying in a pool of blood. Facial scarring and two fractures to my skull was the outcome. I am lucky to still be alive. Worst night of my life.
