A 15-year-old boy was attacked with a baseball bat while being robbed by a gang of youths in Hampshire.

The teenager was walking with a 14-year-old boy when they were confronted by up to 12 youths in Taunton Drive, Southampton.

The boys' mobile phones were stolen in the robbery late on Saturday.

The youth with the baseball bat is described as white, aged 17-19, 5ft 10in tall and slim.

He wore a black coat with a red tick on the left side of the chest and the hood up. The other robber is white, 5ft 7in tall and wore a grey tracksuit with a blue tick on the top and white trainers.
