T In The Park man claims he was stabbed 11 times during festival attack
A man who was stabbed 11 times at last year's T In The Park festival has given evidence about his ordeal in court.

Mark Morrison, 23, was set upon inside the grounds of the Balado, Kinross festival on July 13 last year.

He told the High Court in Dunfermline that the incident happened after he confronted a man who was hassling one of his female friends on the site. A second man is then alleged to have jumped on Morrison's back, before he was stabbed.

Robert Kidd, 24, from Barrhead, and John Tiffoney, 25, from Cardiff, both deny attempting to murder Morrison.

His injuries included six stab wounds on his back, three on his right side, and one on the right side of his head, reports BBC News.

"I felt blows on my back several times. Then I felt myself struggling to breathe," Morrison told the court.

"I got up to try to get myself away. I thought I had been winded or at worst cracked a rib. I walked up by our tent and fell to my knees. The man followed me and kicked me to the side of my head, and I remember him walking away from me."

Morrison added that he could not identify who it was who attacked him.

Kidd and Tiffoney both deny three further allegations that they assaulted other women during the festival.

After the incident, T In The Park boss Geoff Ellis told NME.COM he was left "despondent" by the incident.

The case continues.
