Pc Angelo Cavaliere, of West Midlands Police, said: "This incident has really shaken up the young mum involved and left her in considerable shock.

"Fortunately her young son was unharmed but we would appeal to anyone who saw the incident to call us."

The driver is described as being of Asian appearance with short black hair and a goatie beard, police said.

He was wearing a khaki hooded jacket with blue jeans and had two passengers in the car who were also of Asian appearance, one of whom was wearing a hat.
