Robbers drag elderly man from car in Bilston

An 84-year-old man suffered a broken hip when he was dragged from his car by robbers in the West Midlands.

Father-of-three Michael Green, who is recovering in hospital, had just left the Trumpet Pub in High Street, Bilston, when the attackers struck on Friday evening.

They took his Toyota Avensis but crashed it shortly afterwards.

In a statement, his daughter said the attack had a "massive effect on him, both physically and mentally".

A 16-year-old has been arrested on suspicion of robbery and bailed pending further inquiries.

BBC Midlands Today's Sian Grzeszczyk reports.
