A Northumberland woman with terminal cancer was beaten up and robbed for just £15.

Marilyn Massie, 63, was assaulted 20 yards from her Ashington home after a night out with friends.

A youth on a bike knocked her to the ground and attacked her, breaking her nose and wrist and leaving her with facial injuries which required stitches.

The thief stole £15 from her handbag which she had planned to use for a birthday gift for her grandson.

Look North's Chris Stewart spoke to her.
