A MAN was stabbed on a river close to Windsor Castle after a group of thugs boarded his pleasure boat.
The 25-year-old is in a “serious but stable” condition after being struck repeatedly in the neck and body.
He had been travelling on a boat with friends on the Thames near Eton, Berks, on Wednesday afternoon.
A group of youths on a larger boat then approached with some clambering across to carry out the attack.
The culprits are said to have fled on foot.
