A man in a motorised wheelchair had a knife held to his throat and was robbed in what police have called a “despicable and cowardly” crime.

The victim, 57, was attacked by two men on the riverside path leading from the Millennium footbridge in Newport at about 22:00 BST on Wednesday.

The pair, who were riding silver bikes, stole cash from the man before riding off towards Corporation Road.

They were both described as Asian, in their 20s, and 5ft 8in (1.7m).
