A Labour MP has been smashed in the face with a brick by a gang on motorbikes.
Steve McCabe, 61. member for Birmingham Selly Oak, posted a picture of his 'very sore and swollen face' last night as police launched an investigation.
He also published images of the two men involved, who were wearing full-face helmets, and asked the public help him identify them to detectives.
He tweeted: 'Tonight nursing a very sore & swollen face. I was struck with a brick by a motorbike thug in Greenford Rd. Have given full statement to police.'
The MP urged locals to help track the motorbike riders down, tweeting: 'Sure somebody recognises these two. All I need are names & addresses. Send them to me anonymously & I'll do the rest with the police.'
Mr McCabe received messages of sympathy from colleagues across the
