A road rage incident in Chesterfield has left an 80-year-old woman with a cut and bruised hand. The elderly woman was driving along Ulverston Road around 3.15pm on Friday 14 October when a car approached from the opposite direction. She decided to pull in and let the car pass, but it’s reported that the driver said he wanted her to reverse.
Police say he got out of his car and became verbally abusive to her, before taking her keys from the ignition. The victim then took her key back, and as she did so, it cut her hand, causing bleeding and bruising. She has described the driver as white, in his late 20s and with short, dark hair. He wore a jumper and a black leather jacket, and drove a black car. Anyone with any information is asked to contact police.

Sky-watchers in the Midlands got a chance to see the October full moon, known as the Supermoon, last night (16 October).
It is described as a Supermoon because it appears bigger and brighter than usual due to its proximity to the earth.
It is one of the year's most dramatic lunar events where the moon can appear 14% bigger and 30% brighter than normal.
Tonight is expected to be a great night to see the "supermoon", where the moon's closeness to Earth makes it appear much larger than usual. This picture was taken just after 7pm in Derby. Email your pictures to itv.com/central or post them here
