A man was deliberately hit by a car after confronting hare-coursers in Suffolk, according to police.

The man in his 60s was struck at Hitcham, near Stowmarket, at about 10:45 GMT after approaching people hare-coursing on private land.

They then drove their car at him, injuring his back and cutting his hand.

The man's injuries are not thought to be serious but he is receiving treatment at West Suffolk Hospital in Bury St Edmunds.

Police said the offenders also drove their car, a blue T-registration Subaru estate, towards a woman, who was not hit.

They rammed a car before leaving in the direction of Preston St Mary. Officers said the Subaru may have been extensively damaged.
