The 46-year-old remains in hospital with multiple injuries, including stab wounds to his neck, head and chest, fractures to his left shoulder, ribs and left arm, and a shattered shin.

He said his injuries are so severe he is in excruciating pain and will be in a wheelchair for at least the next 18 months.

"I just want to thank my neighbours who heard me shouting and ran to my aid, he said.

"If they hadnt responded to my calls, with the amount of pain I was in and the fact I absolutely couldnt move, I was that broken, I dont think I would be here today.

"I thought it was a nightmare until I felt the searing pain. Theyd left me for dead.

"My shins broken in four pieces and is being held together by pins, and Im still in terrible pain.

"But the thing Im most gutted about is that I wont be able to return to my home and the most incredible community in Meersbrook, where Ive enjoyed living so much for the last 11 years.

Mr Sinclair said that even if he felt safe returning to his house he wouldnt be able to return because his injuries are so bad the terraced property would no longer be suitable.

The former welder already had a number of disabilities, including fibromyalgia, which causes pain and tiredness, spinal injuries from a crash 10 years ago, which left him unable to work, and a rare condition called hypopituitarism, which affects his body's ability to produce vital hormones.

He was first attacked at around 1am that before before the second more serious assault, involving three assailants, happened at around 4.30am.

No one has been arrested.

Anyone with information should call South Yorkshire Police on 101 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
