Police are investigating an attack on a taxi driver in a supermarket car park.

Officers were called to the Aldi car park in Urban Road, Kirkby, at around 8.40pm yesterday after a taxi driver reported being robbed.

A Nottinghamshire Police spokesman said: "It is believed he was approached by four youths pretending to be customers who then assaulted him by punching him in the face and demanded money.

"He then escaped and saw the offenders search his vehicle before getting away with cash and a mobile phone.

"They then left the area via a disused dirt track.

"We don't have much of a description but the offenders are said to be four white males, aged around 15 to 16 and wearing casual clothing."

Witnesses or anyone with information should call police on 101, quoting incident 863 of July 2.
