Harrowing bodycam footage released of moment stolen car is driven into police officer

A man has been jailed after driving over a police officer with a stolen car.

CCTV and bodycam footage of the incident has now been released - with PC Nina Foran being heard to scream in pain as the car runs over her twice.

The driver, Rehan Baluch, was drunk and had taken cannabis before he got behind the wheel.

Police chiefs said it was "sheer luck" that no one was killed or severely injured.

Baluch, of no fixed address, was jailed on Monday for seven years.

He pleaded guilty at Manchester's Minshull Street Crown Court to dangerous driving, driving whilst disqualified, aggravated taking of a motor vehicle without consent, assault and attempted section 18 assault.

The manner in which Baluch acted was careless beyond belief.

Officers put themselves on the line to protect our streets, but they should never be subjected to something like this.
