A spokesman for Northants Police said: "The driver then moved his vehicle forward, stopping the van from passing.

"Unable to reverse, the delivery driver has blocked the road as the Range Rover driver has refused to move his vehicle.

"The driver got out of his Range Rover and approached the delivery driver, opened his door and slammed it shut repeatedly, causing a minor arm injury to the delivery driver."

The driver of the Range Rover was a white man in his late 20s to early 30s, 5ft 8in and of a medium build.

He had dark coloured hair, a trimmed beard and was wearing glasses, blue jeans and a blue hooded top.
