Fuel thief jailed after victim clung to car for half a mile

A teen has been jailed for 11 years after a petrol station owner was left with skull fractures following a fuel theft in Kent.

Joshua Charnley, 19, of no fixed abode, carried the victim on the bonnet of the car he was driving for almost half a mile after he had attempted to stop him leaving the scene.

CCTV, released by police, captures the terrifying ordeal in West Kingsdown in July last year.

As he was jailed at Canterbury Crown Court, Charnley was also told he would be disqualified from driving for 15 years.
