The dad-of-five said: “I just can’t believe I have come out of the army and been attacked on Civvy Street. I was only about 100 metres from my house.

“I have put my life on the line for my country and this is how I’ve been repaid. I have been shot at in war zones and now I feel unsafe going out here. I expected to be safe after I left the army.”

He put his life on the line for his country in some of the world’s most dangerous war zones and survived being shot.
But army veteran Micky Dennett is now afraid to go out on Tyneside after he was attacked just yards from his home.
