POLICE are appealing for witnesses after a driver ran over a grandfather’s foot after an argument over parking near a Rose Green school.

The 69-year-old victim asked the driver of a dark blue Vauxhall Astra to move his car because it was causing an obstruction in Greynville Close, close to Rose Green Junior School about 3.30pm on Monday, June 30.

The driver verbally abused the victim before rolling his car over the foot of the victim, who was with his grandchildren.

The victim put his grandchildren in his own car and was then confronted by the driver and two other women who shouted abuse at him.

He then had to drive over a grass verge to get around the Vauxhall, which was still blocking the road and had a registration that began with “KJ”.

PC Emma Lacey said: “The victim suffered a broken toe but was also subjected to some nasty abuse in front of his young grandchildren

“I would like to speak to anyone who was in the area at the time and who may have seen what happened.

“I am also keen to speak to any residents or the parents of children at the school who may know who the Vauxhall owner is as the incident happened at the end of the school day.”

Anyone with information should call 101 quoting serial 1706 of 30/6, email or call the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
