A KNIFE attack victim saved his own life after having his throat slit — by stemming the gushing blood with a doner kebab.
Quick-thinking James Hobbs, 37, held the wrapped £3.40 takeaway to his neck for several minutes until his cousin found a towel to cover the 5in gash.

The jobless dad lost 6½ pints of blood by the time medics arrived at Tasty Bitez.
He needed an op to open his windpipe so he could breathe and 27 staples to seal the cut.
James said: “I instinctively whacked the kebab to my neck to restrict blood flow. It’s pure luck I was hungry.”
Jamie Edney, 34, is charged over the attack in Highbridge, Somerset.
