PC John Cavanagh from GMP’s Roads Policing Unit said: “This attack was unbelievable, and as been clearly captured on CCTV.

“Luckily neither of the men was seriously injured however they have been left shocked by the incident.

“The driver and passenger in the lorry were just trying to get on with their day’s work when they collided with the man in the pick-up truck, accidents happen and they were attempting to deal with the situation in an appropriate manner, no one could have anticipated the level of violence they would then fall victim to.
