Jeffrey said: "We are shocked and appalled at the violence used against our mother Iris, better known as Anne to her friends and family - a defenceless 90-year-old-woman. It has left us feeling stunned and sickened." Images of the severe bruising suffered by Iris during the attack in Brent, north London, have been released by her family as they appeal for the public to come forward with information.
