A 25-year-old Richard Gatiss has been charged with assaulting a disable pensioner Alan Barnes.

Frail Mr Barnes, 67, was pushing his bin outside his home in Gateshead, Tyne and Wear, on January 25, when he was allegedly knocked to the ground, the court was told.

He suffered a broken collar bone when he was attacked outside his home in Low Fell, Gateshead, on January 25.

Reports according to daily mail, A Go Fund Me page was set up by local beautician Katie Cutler for Mr Barnes and has since received more than £120,000 in donations.

Ms Cutler, 21, had originally established the page with the aim of raising £500 to help Mr Barnes relocate, after the attack left Mr Barnes scared to return home.

Speaking of his gratitude at the public’s generosity, he said: ‘It is just amazing, a simple thank you doesn’t cover it.

‘I was shocked when my sister showed me the figure, it was very hard to actually comprehend what was happening. It was a total surprise and I can’t believe the generosity being shown.

‘It was an incredible reaction from the public and it’s putting the North East on the map and shows the community spirit that we have here.

‘There wouldn’t be enough words for me to thank Katie, I’m blown away.’
