Liz Hurley has shared a picture of a horrific knife wound sustained by her nephew in a desperate appeal for information about five men who stabbed him in a 'road rage attack'.
Miles Hurley, a 21-year-old model, lost four pints of blood when he and another friend were stabbed following a minor prang in Wandsworth.
As police released CCTV of the minutes before the stabbing, Ms Hurley revealed that the men who attacked her nephew had also tried to stuff him into the boot of their car in what is believed to have been a kidnap attempt.
She called on her Twitter followers to share the police appeal and find the suspects as she posted the distressing image, which showed the open wound where Miles was stabbed in the back.

“This is what the knifemen did to my nephew’s back,' she tweeted.
'If you think you know who they are, please call 0203 276 2603 or call Crimestoppers anonymously: 0800 555 111. Please RT. '
She had earlier told her followers that he “remains in great pain” but was “recovering slowly” as she called for more to be done to keep the streets of London safe.
Miles also posted on Instagram over the weekend, writing: 'Thank you to everyone for sending kind messages to me. I’m still struggling to walk but am slowly recovering. Thank you to my family for being the best.'
Sharing the picture of the wound, he added: 'Scroll to see the wound if you have a strong stomach.'
Mr Hurley and his friend, also 21, were driving along Wandsworth Road on March 8 when they were involved in a minor crash with a black hatchback.
A row broke out and led to a high speed chase, which ended in Ascalon Street when both groups got out of the cars and the model and his friend were attacked.
Under the heading 'Let's find these vicious knifemen and make our streets safer' Ms Hurley said on Twitter: 'The victims drove to Ascalon Road, and got out of their car.
'The suspects also stopped, got out of their vehicle, attempted and failed to abduct my nephew by putting him in the trunk of their car, stabbed them both and drove off.'
Writing on Instagram at the weekend she pledged to help make the capital's streets safer: 'We need to make our streets safer and I want to be part of the movement to achieve that. I hope you will join me.'
She added: 'Thank you to all who sent such kind messages following the news that my nephew was viciously stabbed last week. His wound is shocking, he remains in great pain and he can hardly move, but he is slowly recovering.'
Earlier Scotland Yard released a CCTV clip of the black hatchback, which had blacked out windows, that they are trying to trace.
Detectives are appealing for anyone who saw either a beige Fiat 500 or black hatchback on Wandsworth Road and in the Patmore Estate at about 8.45pm to contact them.
The driver of the suspects' car was white or mixed race, aged in his early to mid-20s, 6ft, well-built and with a shaved head and stubble. He was wearing a navy blue tracksuit. His passengers were all young black men, police said.
