A teenager from Northamptonshire has been attacked with his own crutches.
15-year-old Angus Whittall was struck six times on the back of his head with the walking aids in an apparently unmotivated assault.
The attacker was quickly identified by the police, but Angus' parents say they are disappointed the seventeen-year-old was only given a final warning.
