Police have released CCTV footage of a car they are looking to trace as part of an investigation into the stabbing of Elizabeth Hurley’s nephew and another man in Wandsworth, London.
The actress has previously spoken about the ‘brutal attack’ on 21-year-old model Miles Hurley after he was stabbed in the capital earlier this month.
A second man, also aged 21, was also found with stab wounds after the incident in Ascalon Street, police said.
They were both taken to hospital for treatment and have since been discharged.
Detectives said the two victims were driving in a beige Fiat 500 on Wandsworth Road when they were involved in a ‘verbal altercation’ with the occupants of another car following a minor collision.
The pair were chased at high speed by the men in the other car, which is described as a black hatchback with blacked-out windows, before getting out of the car on Ascalon Street and being attacked.
