A victim of a homophobic attack who was stabbed multiple times says "I'm lucky I wasn't killed", adding he couldn't walk for two weeks following the incident.

Anthony Nolan (28) was stabbed five times, lost two pints of blood and had to get dozens of stitches to wounds on his lacerated body after he and his boyfriend were attacked at Newbridge train station in Co Kildare nearly three weeks ago.

Speaking for the first time about the attack, Anthony hopes it accelerates new hate crime legislation in this country.
