A woman has been treated for temporary blindness after being sprayed in the face during a robbery in Rotherham.

Two men forced their way into Foster's Garage in Thrybergh and sprayed the woman with chemicals, then made off with money from the till.

The woman was taken to Rotherham District Hospital for treatment.

South Yorkshire Police want to hear from anyone who saw two men acting strangely near the garage on Doncaster Road on Sunday night.
