Police are appealing for witnesses after a takeaway delivery driver was robbed in Huddersfield ... for the sake of some food.

The crime happened on Gilbert Grove, Crosland Moor, when the driver was flagged down by three men who then demanded food.

Three more men then arrived and surrounded the victim before two of the group forced the driver out of his car. Two others then went into the car and took food from it before the group made off.
