Dean Scriven, 27, from Pantside, said although he was rushed to Newport’s Royal Gwent Hospital by ambulance at 3.30am on Saturday, the knife remained in his back for at least 12 hours until it was finally taken out at the University of Wales Hospital, Cardiff, the following afternoon.

The six-inch knife was lodged in Mr Scriven’s back between his shoulder blades and narrowly avoided his spinal chord and vital organs.
