Police are trying to trace three men in connection with an assault on a taxi driver in York last night.

It happened at around 11pm on Hull Road in York near the Beeswing Pub and North Yorkshire Police say that while the driver has not suffered from any injuries, he is "very shook up" by the incident.

Officers say they now want to speak to three men, who had got into his car asking for a lift, and who may have information which would assist the investigation.

The only information that is known about the suspects is that they were three white males, one of which was wearing a white t-shirt.

Anyone who was in the area at the time, who may have witnessed the incident, or anyone with information that could assist the investigation should contact North Yorkshire Police on 101, select option 2, and ask for PC 1983 Lucy Watson or email Lucy.Watson@northyorkshire.pnn.police.uk
