Police have released dash cam footage of the attack and are appealing to anyone with any information.

Detective Sergeant Ian Partington, of GMP’s Bury borough, said: “As you will see from the footage, this was a disturbing and unprovoked attack on an innocent woman as she sat in her car at a junction.
