Elizabeth Hurley has shared a picture of herself celebrating Easter with her nephew three weeks after he was stabbed, saying she is “thanking God” he is alive.

Miles Hurley, 21, was hospitalised after he and a friend were stabbed following a minor road crash in south-west London on March 8.

The actress wrote on Instagram: “Thanking God today that I have my nephew @mileshurley1 with us for Easter.

“His knife wound is still oozing blood but he’s alive and we’re thankful for that.”

Hurley, who was wearing bunny ears in the sweet image, continued: “The knifemen who attacked him are still at large and roaming around London.

“If you don’t feel ok with that, you should demand more police on your streets, more CCTV, more stop and search and harsher sentencing for carrying lethal weapons.

“Happy Easter xx.”

Mr Hurley and his friend, also 21, were driving along Wandsworth Road in a beige Fiat 500 when they were involved in a minor crash with a black hatchback. A row broke out and led to a chase, which ended in Ascalon Street when both groups got out of the cars and model Mr Hurley and his friend were attacked.

Hurley previous shared a picture of her nephew’s wound.

The actress has also pledged to help make the capital’s streets safer in the wake of the incident.

She said on Instagram: “We need to make our streets safer and I want to be part of the movement to achieve that.

“I hope you will join me.”
