A great-grandmother was left unconscious and bleeding during an attack by two boys in Lancashire.

Patricia Thistleton, 64, was pushed to the ground outside an off-licence in Skeffington Road, Preston, at about 21:30 BST on Tuesday.

The boys beat her up before stealing a silver ring from her.

Lancashire Police said the teenagers were aged between 14 and 15, about 5ft 6in (1.7m) and were wearing black tops with the hoods up.

Both were wearing tracksuit bottoms, one in grey and one in black.

Detectives are looking at CCTV from the area and are appealing for witnesses to contact them.
