PEOPLE like Frederick Turner are made of strong stuff.

Two men burst into his home and attacked him.

Brave Frederick, 82, fought back and hit one of them with a poker.

The raiders probably weren’t counting on a plucky pensioner.

But the fact that they grabbed him from behind, pushed him to the floor, held him still and injured his hand means the robbers weren’t afraid to use force.

And if anyone has any information on the thugs who left with just £100, they should contact the police now.
