Shocking CCTV shows driver thrown from stolen 4 x 4

A man from Dudley has been sent to jail for stealing a 4x4 in an attack that left its owner with severe leg injuries.

Chase Edwards, 30, was given seven years and four months for a string of offences including theft, robbery and driving while disqualified and without insurance.

Shocking CCTV footage shows fruit and vegetable seller Stuart Timmins being flung from his 4x4 as he clung on to try to stop Mr Edwards from stealing it.

He was dragged a few hundred metres along the road but as the pick-up accelerated away he realised it was too dangerous to cling on any longer.
