A  courageous mum showed bravery when faced with the terrifying ordeal that carjackers were trying to steal her car whilst her 3 year-old sat in the back.

Three men approached her as she was getting out of her Audi in Oakland Road, Mosley at around 6pm on Friday July 26.

One of the men held a crowbar as he went towards the woman.

All three men wore balaclavas.

They demanded her keys knowing her three-year-old was still inside the car, she managed to fight them off.

Police officers are appealing for witnesses or anyone who recognises the men in this video.
