A woman who deliberately drove a stolen car into a man and then reversed over his legs during a street brawl in Hull has been jailed for nine years.

Estelle Lashley, 26, of Elm Street, left her victim with two broken legs and unable to walk for six months.

She had driven a gang of bat-wielding attackers to Coltman Street on 5 July to settle a row over money.

Sentencing her at Hull Crown Court, Judge Mark Bury said Lashley had behaved "appallingly badly".

The victim would not be able to walk again for six months and "his life will never be the same", the judge added.

David Godfrey, defending Lashley, said she accepted the offence in full and described her actions as a "moment of madness".

She was also banned from driving for four years after admitting causing grievous bodily harm with intent, aggravated vehicle taking and driving without insurance.
