A dog walker suffered a broken jaw and arm fractures in an attack in Doncaster.

The 53-year-old was walking along the old pit top, off Jenkinson Grove, Armthorpe, when he was targeted.

Three trail bikers - a man in his early 20s, a teenage boy and a teenage girl - were riding in the area just before the attack.

The man is reported to have assaulted the dog walker as he walked past him pushing his bike.
