Widow, 86, traps intruder with crutch

An 86-year-old who found an intruder in her kitchen whacked him with her crutch and held him until police arrived.

Widow Gwyneth Davies, from Treharris, near Merthyr Tydfil, struck the man four times with the metal walking stick she uses after having a fractured hip.

The former munitions worker said: "He was left bent over the work surface with his face buried in his hands - he didn't know what had hit him."

A 26-year-old man has been remanded in custody, charged with burglary.
