Woman knocked out by thug mob at train station after she told them off for throwing stones onto tracks

The lone passenger was waiting for a train when she challenged the group of 15 youths at Mossley railway station in Tameside, Greater Manchester.

The gang responded by punching the lone woman, who fell unconscious on the platform.

Paramedics treated her at the scene and she was taken to hospital for further check-ups, but escaped with only minor injuries.
