Man attacked on mobility scooter in Longtown

Two men who attacked a disabled man are being sought by police in Cumbria.

The 55-year-old victim was riding his mobility scooter in the Longtown area of Carlisle on Sunday evening when the pair stopped him by blocking his path.

One of them is believed to have said "go on, hit him" and he was punched in the chest and stomach.

Anyone with information about the incident, which happened at the corner of Lovers Lane and Moor Road at about 17:15 GMT, should contact police.

One of the attackers is thought to have been wearing white trainers while both spoke with local accents.
