A man who tried to kill a policewoman in Leeds has been jailed for life. James Leslie opened fire on PC Suzanne Hudson with a sawn off shotgun at point blank range. She has been left with permanent injuries.
Leslie's sentence was handed down to him by a judge at Leeds Crown Court who described Leslie as a dangerous offender and said PC Hudson was fortunate to have survived.
Chris Kiddey reports:
The driver of a tractor which hit a boy on a children's farm was twice over the drink drive limit - an inquest heard today.
11-year-old Harry Whitlam died from head injuries two years ago, when the tractor was reversed into him on Swithens Farm in Rothwell.
But a police officer told the coroner that although driver Gary Green had been arrested, he couldn't be prosecuted because it happened on private land. The inquest also heard that Harry often went to work with his mother - and was not supposed to go into the working area of the farm.
James Leslie, convicted of trying to murder a Leeds policewoman ,has been jailed for life with a recommendation he serve at least 15 years.
39-year-old Leslie was convicted last year of attempted murder and is being sentenced at Leeds Crown Court.
Leslie fired a sawn off shotgun at PC Suzanne Hudson's head at point blank range through a glass window when she called at his flat in Headingley in December 2013. She has been left with a permanent disability in her hand and needed emergency surgery on arteries in her neck.
