Detective Sergeant Rick Ellis, who is investigating the incident, said: “I would like to hear from anyone locally who may have either seen this incident or have dashcam or CCTV footage which could help the investigation.

“This must have been a really scary incident for the man involved and I would really like the public’s help in finding the person responsible. If you have been in the area or you live nearby, please check your footage and get in touch if you have anything which may be of interest to us. ”

  1. I feel that the situation the world is in with the corona virus is only going to get worse the corona virus could stay with us as long as 2023 we’ve gotta combat this silient killer fully and the only way that going to happen is by closing collages universitys and schools. We cannot live like this for much longer or England will head into poverty and they would be no coming back from that at all since we’ve left the EU

  2. I think we have a fantastic emergency service the ambulance staff are absolutely amazing with what they are doing knowing they are themselves heading into danger with a covid positive patient and the ambulance service do really deserve to be on the British pride awards ceremony because I really think that they deserve to be recognised for the work they do
