Woman held after child's buggy 'pushed into road'

A buggy containing a 13-month-old girl was pushed into a Hampshire road when an argument broke out between her mother and another woman.

The child's 22-year-old mother was on a street in Portsmouth when the incident took place on Sunday afternoon.

Police said the buggy was pushed into the road and narrowly missed by a car.

The driver got out and a 24-year-old woman was later arrested by police who have appealed for witnesses to come forward.

A spokesman for Hampshire Constabulary said: "This was a particularly nasty unprovoked attack, the consequences of which could have been tragic."
