A female driver was slapped in the face by a pedestrian in Northampton after she sounded her horn at a group of people who were blocking a junction.

The woman was driving her blue Ford Ka from Kettering Road into Cowper Street, Northampton, sometime between 1.30pm and 2pm on Tuesday, October 27, when she noticed the junction was blocked by a group of pedestrians.
