A MAN who ran over a petrol station attendant as he attempted to drive away with £120 of fuel has been jailed for 17 months.

Scott Dearing, 30, drove into Michelle Carr as he attempted to flee the Jet petrol station in Park Road on December 4.

Miss Carr suffered "bumps and bruises" after being thrown on to the bonnet of the car before falling off.

Dearing, of no fixed abode, was jailed at Sheffield Crown Court, having previously pleaded guilty to eight offences, including assault, dangerous driving and theft.
