A 30-year-old accused of running over a man during a mass street brawl has appeared in court.

Police were called to reports of a fight on Staniforth Road in Darnall, Sheffield on Sunday evening. A man with serious injuries was found in the road.

Liam Sharp, 30, has been charged with wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm.

He was remanded in custody by city magistrates on Tuesday.

Mr Sharp, from Chadwick Road in Woodthorpe, Sheffield is due to appear at the city's crown court on 16 August.

South Yorkshire Police said the injured man remained in a stable condition in hospital after being found with "injuries consistent with being run over by a vehicle".
