Franz Ferdinand drummer Paul Thomson has spoken out against Glasgow’s knife culture.

Thomson spoke out after a knife attack left him too scared to leave his home.

Speaking to Glasgow’s Evening Times, he said: “I would have no hesitation in supporting an anti-knife campaign. I’ve been assaulted before and it’s pretty terrifying. Somebody threw a brick in my face outside my house.

"That was a bit hairy, I was too terrified to leave the house. That was bad enough, so I am not in favour of anyone carrying a knife, even in self-defence. The best form of self-defence is to run like hell.”

The band are currently on tour in the UK.
