A man was stabbed yesterday when he struggled with a burglar who was trying to steal his car. Mr. Martin Bott, of County Durham, saw someone sitting behind the wheel of his new Renault 19 Chamade. ‘I thought he was just punching me at first,’ he said, ‘then I saw the blood. He’d used a knife from my kitchen to stab me. Luckily, I’d washed it the night before, so at least the wounds are clean.’
