Gangsters slice off mans leg and partners fingers as she tried to grab phone

A woman has relived the horror of when she and her then-partner were allegedly attacked in their home by machete-wielding gang members.

She lost fingers and her husband had to have his leg amputated after they hadn’t paid a six-figure debt.

Gang members are understood to have travelled up from Liverpool to Scotland to the couple’s home in Coatbridge, Lanarkshire.

The woman, 28, had been making a bid to call the police when she was hit, severing the two middle fingers on her left hand on the May 19 attack.

The mum of two has since said her life will never be the same again, telling the Daily Record: “It’s a horrendous thing that happened to me and it’s difficult to talk about.

“I’m just trying to move forward with my life and recover from all of this. It has been a traumatic experience.

“I’m trying to focus on me and the kids at the moment. My partner and I have now gone our separate ways. I’m not in touch with him any more.

“I can’t tell you why we were attacked. I don’t know the ins and outs of the story as he hasn’t been honest with me about what happened.”

The couple had to be taken to the hospital at Monklands, with images of the incident allegedly circulating on social media last week.

The Daily Star has been unable to verify this, or the identity of the woman.

Images have also circulated of a man with his face undisclosed with his right leg amputated.

A relative of the woman said: “Even the police have said it was the worst they had ever seen. She was lucky she did not lose more than her two fingers.”

An incident was reported last month with one victim left in a “serious” condition with police said to be investigating.
