Officers in Stroud are appealing for witnesses after a 75-year-old man was the victim of a road rage incident last week.

At approximately 9.15am on Wednesday 5 July a man in a Citroen was driving along the B4066 when he noticed he was being tailgated.

The victim had travelled from North Woodchester toward the Coaley Peak viewpoint near Nympsfield when he pulled over to allow a van to overtake.

The offender was driving a distinctive old decommissioned Royal Mail van where the red colour had faded.

After pulling over the victim got out of his car and a man, believed to be in his 30s, assaulted the victim causing him minor facial injuries.

Damage was also caused to the victim's car.

Officers are looking to speak to a number of witnesses who were travelling in vehicles behind the van and stopped to help the victim.

Any witnesses, or anyone with information, should call police on 101 and quote incident number 300 of 5/7/17.
