A young woman suffered minor injuries when a teenage gang – thought to be a mix of boys and girls- attacked her at home.

The injured woman, in her 30s, was taken to Wisbech Police Station by a neighbour who witnessed the attack in Church Mews.

It happened at around 5.30pm on December 17 when the neighbour came to the rescue.

He described the attack as "disgusting" and said the victim was very distressed.
