A person has been charged after a 26-year-old man was reportedly assaulted inside a Ford Fiesta in Thorpe-le-Soken.

Danny Granville, 31, of no fixed address, was arrested and charged with attempting to cause grievous bodily harm, dangerous driving, failing to stop after an accident and failing to report an accident.
