Those living in the Withywood area say the incident reflects what the community is like.

14-year-old Tara-Leigh Cox, who lives nearby, said: "I don't know what comes across their heads to do that to someone, like a grown man who is working to provide for his family".

Her mother Vicki Cox said the video made her feel sick. She shared the video hoping it might help parents recognise those in the group of teenagers.
