A man needed hospital treatment after being attacked by a gang armed with machetes in Newcastle.

The 35-year-old victim suffered hand injuries after being attacked by three masked men at a house in the city's Tamworth Road on Monday night.

A second man in the property was unharmed and nothing was stolen, Northumbria Police said.

A spokesman said up to seven offenders may have been involved, who made off in a black BMW and a black Vauxhall Astra.
