A man allegedly tried to murder four young children by hitting them with a hammer and then crashing a car with them inside into the wall of a Barnsley pub.

But Sheffield Crown Court heard that 29-year-old Owen Scott and the four youngsters, including a nine-month-old baby, all survived the incident at the Travellers' Inn at Oxspring.
