A man who was seriously injured but survived a triple stabbing that claimed two lives has spoken from his hospital bed.

Two men, one his in the late 20s and one in his late 30s, were pronounced dead at the scene.

Patrick Howard was named by locals as one of the two victims as the only-survivor Mason described the “rollercoaster of emotions” he was going through as he paid tribute to him.

Mason, who is in a serious but stable condition, wrote: “Words can’t describe the rollercoaster of emotions I’m going thru rn now you’ve been on my mind all day I’ve cried all the tears out my body for u till there’s not a tear left!

“I love you, my brudda… my killy Patrick Howard and for all the messages n prays I’ve received it’s crazy we on the road to recovery.”

Others who knew Patrick paid tribute saying they will love him forever and he will be deeply missed.

Bedfordshire Police say they believe the attack was targeted and that all parties were known to each other.

When they arrived they found three men suffering from stab wounds.
