A man was hunted down, dragged out of his car and viciously assaulted by a group of men after an argument with a driver over a right of way.

Dad-of-two Martin Yardley said he felt “lucky to be alive” after five men attacked him in Savile Town.

He was taken to Pinderfields Hospital in Wakefield with various injuries, including bruising and cuts to his body, eyes and head.

Mr Yardley, 42, of ­Bywell Road, said: “I thought I was going to die – it was really frightening. It was all because I argued with one of them over who had right of way at a set of traffic lights.”
