AN "unprovoked" axe attack has left a man with horror injuries.

He was set upon while cycling in Nottingham yesterday evening while out with two others.

They were approached by a man carrying an axe in Bestwood Lodge Drive at about 8.40pm.

One of the riders was hit in the head, shoulder and back in the unprovoked attack.

He was rushed to hospital but his injuries are not thought to be "life-altering".

Cops are still searching for the man responsible, with police drones and dogs failing to find the suspect last night.

He is described as being a white man in his 40s or 50s. He was wearing a red top and black shorts.

Det Sgt Dave Prest said: "This must have been an incredibly scary and traumatic experience and we are keen to get to the bottom of this incident as quickly as possible.

"We were quickly on the scene and had police dogs searching and the force’s drone up in the air last night to help with the investigation, but we couldn’t find anyone which matched the description."
