An appeal has been launched to help a pensioner who was punched in the face and mugged in a public toilet.

Geoff', from Cobholm, who is in his 70s, had his wallet stolen after he was hit and fell to the floor.

The incident happened in the lavatories at Market Gates in Great Yarmouth.

He suffered swelling and bruising to his face and a cut to his hand following last Thursday's incident, which was between 1.30pm and 1.40pm.

A pub where he drinks is now raising money to replace the stolen money.

Donations are being collected in a jar behind the bar, and can be made in person.
