Speaking to the media at the Tally Ho! learning and development resource centre in Pershore Road on Thursday evening, he said without police colleagues and worshippers in the mosque he "would not be here today".

Mr Koch suffered multiple knife wounds, had surgery on Sunday for wounds to his stomach and side and has said he owes a "massive debt of thanks" to worshippers who helped him tackle the man.
