Teenager admits attacking traffic warden in street assault

A 19-year-old has admitted assaulting a traffic warden who was kicked and stamped on in a brutal street attack.

Danyal Bashir, from Alum Rock, Birmingham, will be sentenced later this month after pleading guilty to a charge of assault occasioning actual bodily harm.

A previous hearing was told the warden was pulled off his bike on 14 September on Hartopp Road, and left with a split lip and bruising to his head and hands.

A video posted on social media following the assault showed the warden being repeatedly kicked in the head and body by several men.

Bashir, who was warned he is likely to receive a jail sentence, was granted conditional bail to reappear for sentence at Birmingham Crown Court on 23 November.
