A motorist who intentionally drove a car into a group of people standing in Dartford High Street has been jailed for seven years.

Following a fight with a man on a pub dancefloor, which continued into the street, Bradley Knapp got behind the wheel of a Ford Fiesta and accelerated towards a group of people.

He missed his intended targeted but hit two innocent bystanders before fleeing the scene and travelling to Spain.

The 27-year-old, of no fixed address, was found not guilty of attempting to murder pedestrians but admitted causing grievous bodily harm with intent, causing serious injury by dangerous driving and committing an act to pervert the course of justice.

He was sentenced at Maidstone Crown Court on Tuesday, October 5 and, in addition to his time in custody, he will serve a two year extended licence.
