The victim of a road rage incident has been punched by a driver who also tried to pull through him through the car window.
The incident, in which a 63-year-old man suffered injuries to his face and arms, happened in a busy Tesco car park on Tuesday afternoon.
Police said: "The victim was driving a Citroen Picasso along the A30 from Ludwell towards Shaftesbury when a gold or bronze 4x4 vehicle pulled out into his path, causing the victim to slam on his brakes and sound the horn.
"The offender pulled over to the side of the road to allow the victim to pass before following his vehicle to the Tesco car park in Christy’s Lane.
"While the victim was reversing into a parking space, the offender approached and, without provocation, aimed a punch through an open window, knocking off his glasses. The suspect also attempted to pull the victim through the car window."
Pupils at St Mark's in Worle have kept us feeling festive this week, with the enduring Christmas tradition of carol singing.

81-year-old Margaret Griffiths had spent the past few weeks carefully gathering and wrapping presents for her large family, and arranging them under the tree.
But at some point between last Friday night and Saturday morning, someone broke in to her Bridgwater home and took all 19. However it is not just Mrs Griffiths' family who are outraged by what has happened.
Local people - many complete strangers - have clubbed together to replace the presents, using social media to get organised and even getting local businesses to chip in. Fay Loveridge read about the incident in the Facebook group Breaking News Somerset and Beyond, and was moved to help give Mrs Griffiths "just a bit of Christmas back".

Those are the words of the church worker who had to climb to the top of the country's tallest cathedral spire in Salisbury to repair a weather meter.
Gary Price says the worst moment was when he had to step outside a small window near the base of the spire for the final climb to the summit.
Penny Silvester's report includes pictures from Salisbury Cathedral.
A roe deer that went blind after a car accident in Weston-super-mare has made a full recovery - just in time to help Rudolph with the deliveries.
She happened to be hit by veterinary nurse Emma Canill, who, when she saw what she had done, immediately rushed the unconscious animal to the surgery where she works.
Luckily she checked with a local wildlife rescue centre if she could just let her go, who pointed out that deer in traffic accidents can go temporarily blind from stress.
Naming her Prancer, Secret World Wildlife Rescue in East Huntspill looked after her for several days, treating an ulcer in her eye. She was well enough yesterday to be released back into the wild.
Prancer is now back where she belongs - and Santa can rest easy that his sleigh is well tended.
