LABOUR/Co-op MP Jim Dobbin injured his elbow and had to cancel a number of engagements after being involved in a violent struggle with a masked robber who stole his keys and made off with the MP&#039s Volkswagen Passat car.

After the incident in his Heywood & Middleton constituency, Mr Dobbin vowed that he would no longer walk around at night alone. The MP believes his car was "stolen to order" and says that although he was angry at being robbed, the incident could have been far worse.

Police have appealed for information relating to the assault and theft of the vehicle.
