Residents on a Bransholme housing estate have been left shaken by an alleged assault which left trails of blood splattered over their homes and the streets nearby.

People living on Newlyn Close awoke this morning to find the streets around their homes looking like something you might expect to find in a horror film after the incident in a property on nearby Perran Close.

A trail of bloody footprints has been left from the scene of what is reported to have been an assault leading to a phone box on Midmere Avenue. A garage door also sported shocking smears of blood.

The phone box looked like the stuff of nightmares with a large pool of blood at the bottom of it and handprints and smears painting the glass panes.

Long term residents of the estate have been left stunned by the scene telling Hull Live that the area is usually quiet with no similar incidents in recent history.

Gary, 54, lives on Newlyn Close and has been there for 14 years. He said he'd never come across anything like the scene he was faced with this morning.

He said: "I was in the house last night, my bedroom backs onto one of the places where there is one of the pools of blood.

"There was a bit of a scuffle but nothing that would make you worried. I didn't really know anything about it until I came out here this morning.

"I've been here 14 years and we've never had anything like this around this area before, it is usually very quiet.

"There are never really even any problems, it's like nothing I've seen before."

The second left hand spur of Newlyn Close is where the majority of the trail and pools can be found with a cut through at one end that leads onto Perran Close.

Hull City Council workers were seen clearing up with a pressure washer to mop up the bloody scene.

Resident Jamie, 41, took matters into his own hands and started washing away the blood with a hosepipe.

He said: "I've lived here 10 years and I've never seen anything like this before in my life, there is blood all the way up the back gate.

"There was a little bit of commotion in the night but nothing out of the ordinary, it was a couple of people arguing that is what I heard out the back here.

"I woke up this morning and opened the gate and there was just blood everywhere, it was right up to the fence. I'm glad we got a lock otherwise it might have been all over the back garden too.

"It looks like a rugby team have run up the road covered in red paint - it is everywhere."

Jane, 30, was walking her dog near to the phone box on Midmere Avenue. She said the scene had left her feeling unwell.

She said: "I walked past it earlier on, with all the blood at the bottom there it made me feel sick, I've never seen anything like that.

"I just hope the person is okay whoever they are, you look at all the footprints and stains and you wonder if they're going to be alright.

"I've never seen anything like this around here, nothing quite as graphic as this, I've seen them cleaning it up but they need to go quicker there are kids and stuff."
