Alan Barnes: Fundraiser Katie Cutler meets mugging victim

A woman who set up a fundraising page for a man who was mugged outside his home has met the victim as donations top the £200,000 mark.

Alan Barnes, who is visually impaired, was left too afraid to return to his home in Low Fell, Gateshead, after the attack on 25 January.

Following reports of the attack, Katie Cutler set up the Help Alan Barnes online donation page on Go Fund Me.

Charlotte Leeming reports.
