Ex-footballer jumps from moving van to escape police
Police footage shows ex-Nottingham Forest footballer Luke Thomas jumping out of a moving van to escape officers.
The 20-year-old crashed the vehicle in the St Ann's area of Nottingham last June, before climbing over a fence and throwing a loaded handgun into a family's garden.
DNA linked the van and gun to Thomas, and he was arrested a few weeks later.
Thomas, who represented Forest before a knee injury curtailed his career, admitted acting as a weapon "courier", but claimed he had not known the gun was loaded.
