County lines: Drug gang 'stabbed me in the face'

A man with poor eye sight and MS has spoken about how he was stabbed in the face by people wanting to use his home for drug dealing.

Police fear county lines dealers, who operate from London and big cities but sell drugs in other areas, saw Matthew, not his real name, as a potential 'cuckooing' victim.

Dealers will take over homes of vulnerable people and use these as a base for their operations.
