Detectives have condemned a “cowardly and shocking” attack on an 87-year-old woman, which left her in hospital with serious injuries.

The vulnerable pensioner suffered a shattered arm, broken jaw and other facial injuries when she was dragged to the ground in the vicious daylight mugging.

The victim was making her way home on foot when she was approached by a gang of three youths, at the junction of Aberdeen Place and Spencer Road, in Great Horton, Bradford.
