Officers are appealing for witnesses after a driver was assaulted by another motorist on the B6047.

Shortly after 11.30am on Wednesday 11 January a woman driving a white Mercedes A class stopped on a grass verge in Leicester Road, close the entrance to Tilton on the Hill.

A man driving a white transit van pulled up behind the car and reportedly pushed the woman to the floor before getting back into the vehicle and driving away.

Prior to this incident, the car and the van had been travelling on the A607 Queniborough roundabout where it is reported the van had entered the lane the car was driving in without prior warning.

Both vehicles then travelled along Croxton Road before the assault took place.

Following the incident, the woman - who is in her 60s - was taken to hospital and is currently undergoing treatment for a fracture to her spine and one of her wrists.

Investigating officer, Detective Constable Meg Sanderson, said: “I am looking to speak to anyone who may have witnessed the incident – were you driving past at the time and saw the car and van pulled over? Or did you see the two vehicles prior to the incident occurring?”

Report online at or call police on 101, quoting crime reference number 23*21236.
