JAILED: Car thief sped off injuring terrified woman motorist who was clinging on to her vehicle

A CAR thief who sped off injuring a terrified woman motorist who was clinging on to the vehicle has been jailed for three years and four months.
Nicholas Beck, 27, sprang into the silver Vauxhall Astra while Samina Shaheem was leaning into the passenger side to retrieve the contents of her handbag that had spilled into the footwell, Bradford Crown Court heard.
Ms Shaheem had pulled over on Drill Parade, Manningham, Bradford, to collect her scattered belongings, leaving the car engine running and the driver's door open.
Beck, a banned driver, seized his opportunity to steal the vehicle, worth £10,000, to sell on to pay off a drug debt, the court was told yesterday.
Prosecutor James Gelsthorpe said he "lurched backwards" in the Astra before driving it away, at 2pm on July 6 last year.
Beck, of Dawnay Road, Canterbury, Bradford, was originally charged with robbery and dangerous driving but the Crown accepted his guilty pleas to the offences of theft and assaulting Ms Shaheem, causing her actual bodily harm.
