A MAN who suffered a serious injury to his leg in the early hours of Saturday owes his life to three mystery men who stopped to help him, says the ambulance service.

Paramedics were called to the junction of Fulton Close and Argyle Way in Stevenage just after 12.30am.

Ambulance service spokesman Gary Sanderson was first at the scene and said: "We believe the man had climbed over a fence on his way home from the leisure park when he injured his leg. When he walked down the road he collapsed and noticed he was bleeding."

Mr Sanderson said the injury was significant and required rapid treatment and hospital care.
