A father of four who had his ears cut off in a street attack has died in hospital.

Sajed Choudry was seriously injured in what police described as a “large-scale disturbance” near his home in Blackburn last month.

The 43-year-old had been in hospital since the attack at about 10.35pm on 27 November.

A spokesman for Lancashire Police said Mr Choudry died from his injuries on Thursday, and a post-mortem will be carried out to determine the cause of his death.

A 24-year-old man was also seriously injured during the attack and is recovering.
