In a statement, the police said: “Both vehicles then drove towards Sleaford and at the next roundabout the driver of the scooter has challenged the van driver over his driving.

“The driver of the van and passenger have then abandoned their vehicle and chased after the scooter driver, who is in his 60s, back to his home address.”

There, the pair are alleged to have attacked the man using a crowbar before leaving the scene.

The police spokesman added: “The motor scooter driver did not sustain injuries as he was wearing his helmet at the time.
