A blind man walking with his guide dog was punched repeatedly when he asked a van driver to move off the pavement to enable him to pass. 

Tony Webb, 73, was attacked in Bishop's Stortford in Hertfordshire. 

His daughter told the BBC: "Dad asked the driver if he would move so he and Sammy, his guide dog, could get past, but the man said 'no'. 

Dad asked him again and said it was out of order to park on the pavement, and the next thing he knew he was pushed up against the van - he thinks he was punched three times in his eye. 

The man even told my father he didn't believe he was blind."
