A taxi driver accused of deliberately running his mother over has appeared in court charged with attempted murder.

Abdul Abbasi, from Hull, appeared via videolink and did not enter a plea during the hearing at Hull Crown Court.

The court heard a 65-year-old pedestrian suffered "grievous injuries" when she was hit by a reversing car on Redmire Close in Hull on Sunday.

Mr Abbasi, 32, of Thorndale, was remanded in custody and will appear in court again on 16 December.
