Attack man let off 'scot-frree'

AN ELDERLY disabled man has accused the police of allowing a neighbour who attacked him to get away scot-free

AN ELDERLY disabled man has accused the police of allowing a neighbour who attacked him to get away 'scot-free'.

Trevor Kaey, of Highbury Road, Weston, said he is outraged that the man who drove his car into him and slammed him against a wall was not charged for the assault.

The 74-year-old, who has to walk with crutches since an accident 18 months ago left him with a broken foot, said he was attacked on December 5 after a continuing neighbourly feud.

He said: "When I was walking towards my house, along the pavement, I saw his car come straight towards me.
