Police have given a caution to an Oxford man, who threw a tub of butter at an elderly woman during a row in a shop.

The 61-year-old reacted after being confronted by a woman in a queue in a Co-op store on Eynsham High Street in Oxfordshire on 21 October.

He'd pushed in front of the 74-year-old - who told him there was a queue.

He then threw a tub of butter at her face, leaving her with swelling and severe bruising to her lip.

Police released a CCTV image to trace the attacker.
