‘Left with nothing’: US police shooting victim Jacob Blake breaks his silence

Jacob Blake has spoken for the first time as he continues to recover from injuries inflicted when police shot him seven times in an incident that shocked the world last month.

The 29-year-old was fired on by a police officer in Kenosha, Wisconsin, on 23 August as he was attempting to enter his car – which contained three of his young children.

Lawyer Ben Crump shared footage on Saturday night showing Mr Blake speaking from hospital.
