A gay British cop has told how he was savagely beaten by homophobic thugs on a stag weekend in Slovenia with his heterosexual mates, according to local media.

Oliver McNally says he and his pals were attacked with metal police-style batons after falling out with anti-gay revellers in a nightclub in the capital Ljubljana.

"We were in a kebab shop when a vehicle stopped and a group of men got out. I remembered one from an encounter in a club earlier on. All three of us were attacked with batons by six or seven men," he was quoted as saying in the local newspaper Narobe.

"I was hit 10 times all over my body and head and I was terrified. The attack just went on and on and the next thing I knew was coming round on the floor covered in blood. "We're all covered in stitches and bruises," he added.

Slovenian police say they are investigating.
