Elizabeth Hurley says "appalling time for our family" after nephew stabbed

Elizabeth Hurley says

Miles Hurley, 21-year-old nephew of actress Elizabeth Hurley, was rushed to hospital after reportedly being stabbed "multiple times" on a street in Nine Elms in West London on Thursday.

In a tweet, the 52-year-old said it was an "appalling" time for their family and thanked fans for their support. They discovered a 21-year-old man with stab wounds to his back.

Since 2013, Miles has modeled for reputable brands like Roberto Cavalli and Dolce & Gabbana.

Express.co.uk has contacted the Metropolitan Police and representatives for Elizabeth Hurley and Miles Hurley asking for comment.

"Another man, also aged 21 (victim 2), was also found suffering from stab wounds. The police will be appealing for witnesses", she wrote.

The film star is understood to be close to her nephew, and had rushed back from a promotional tour in the U.S. to be at his bedside.

The young model is the son of the actress's older sister Kate Curran, 54, and is very close to his famous aunt and her son Damian Hurley. Fortunately, the blade missed Miles' vital organs so he's expected to recover, according The Sun.

No arrests have yet been made and Wandsworth detectives continue to investigate. "The best advice she has given me is just to enjoy myself, work hard and be nice to everybody". The officials say the men are believed to have been "attacked by a group of males (no further details) who got out of a vehicle and assaulted them before fleeing the scene".

Police have reassured family members and the public that their conditions are "not life-threatening or life-changing".
