A battle-scarred Risso dolphin was pictured leaping and diving in the water off Monterey Bay in California last week, presumably overjoyed to be alive. Down each side of its sleek sides were long teeth marks - a reminder that despite their playful nature life in the ocean is filled with danger for dolphins. The sighting of the dolphin quickly led to speculation among marine biologists and whale watchers as to what predator left the marks.

Few years back I dislocated my knee and blocked one of the veins feeding my foot. As a result this happened. So yes. I have the world’s longest scar.
A vivid scar was left on Dennis Nilsen after he was slashed in Wormwood Scrubs prison, London by a fellow inmate shortly before he was jailed for life in 1983.

Ben Selby, 30, stepped in to try and stop a man and a woman fighting in a nightclub in Bournemouth, Dorset, when he was attacked. Mr Selby spotted the man cut the woman’s arm with a knife during the argument and ran over to help but slipped and fell at the feet of the attacker. The man then sliced Mr Selby’s face from his eye down to below his chin with the blade.
