A British dad has been left trapped in Thailand with a flesh-eating disease after a 'scorpion' bit his leg. Alan Stephenson, 73, has seen the horrific disease strip the skin between his foot and knee leading to him potentially needing his leg amputated.

The 73-year-old from Hull had travelled to Thailand to spend a few months exploring the country. But his dream trip turned into a holiday from hell after being bitten by what he believed to be a scorpion, reports Hull Live.

Alan contacted his son, Kristian, earlier this month to inform him that he was in hospital with his health deteriorating. The 44-year-old rushed out to see his father and endured an difficult trip to a remote hospital where his father was being treated.Kristian says the torrid conditions at the medical facility had him fearing for his father's life.

He said: "It was like something from Banged Up Abroad.""The hospital was terrible and didn't have the resources to do anything with his leg.
