  9. Car key taken in Tesco 'road rage' row

    A pensioner had his car key taken by another motorist after being pursued from a supermarket following an angry confrontation, police say.

    West Mercia Police says a man in his late 60s was leaving the Bewell Street Tesco car park in Hereford on Christmas Eve when his car was blocked by another man, who "shouted abuse" at him.

    Later, at the traffic lights in Newmarket Street, the driver of the obstructing vehicle jumped on the victim's bonnet and opened the car door to take the key from the ignition, a spokesman said.

    Police are appealing for witnesses.
