An 85-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of driving a car at another octogenarian.

Police said the 81-year-old victim was struck near garages on Old Lane, Shawforth, Lancashire, on Wednesday.

He was treated for leg injuries and was in a critical condition, but is now said to be stable.

A man from Shawforth, near Rochdale, was held on suspicion of causing grievous bodily harm with intent and dangerous driving.

He has since been bailed.

Officers believe the men know each other and are appealing for witnesses to the incident.
