A teenager who caused serious injuries to a man when he drove at him with his car and carried him on the bonnet, has been convicted of grievous bodily harm with intent.
Joshua Charnley, who's 19 and of no fixed address, had tried to drive off without paying for fuel at a petrol station in West Kingsdown near Sevenoaks.
The victim, who was the manager of the garage, was carried down the A20 on the car's bonnet for nearly half a mile. He suffered a fractured skull and liver damage. Charnley will be sentenced on Friday.
