    There's really no need for actions like these - an 80-year-woman has been left with an injured hand after a road rage attack in Chesterfield.

    It happened on Friday on Ulverston Road, after the woman pulled in to let an approaching car pass.

    However, the driver indicated he wanted her to reverse, got out of his vehicle and became verbally abusive - and snatched her keys from the ignition.

    When she tried to get the keys back from the man, who was described as white and in his late 20s, she cut her hand.

    William Roache

    After Ken Barlow collapsed and had a stroke, Ilkeston-born William Roache, who plays him, said the storyline made him fear for his job.

    The 84-year-old actor told media at a Coronation Street event in central Manchester: "Well when I first heard about it I was a bit paranoid - first thing I said was do I get better?"

    "And then I said the only thing I want is medical advice to make sure we're medically correct."
