A woman in her seventies is been treated in hospital after an attempted hijacking in north Belfast.

Two men threw her to the ground and tried to steal her vehicle as she was getting into her car on the Antrim Road at about 6:55 BST on Saturday.

After a struggle, she was bitten on the thumb before they escaped with her handbag.

Her injuries are not believed to be life threatening.
