A 23-year-old man from Kent has been jailed for running over a police motorcycle officer.

Raymond Sexton, from Erith, appeared in the Middlesex Guildhall Court after pleading guilty to attempting to cause grievous bodily harm and aggravated vehicle taken.

He was sentenced to an indefinite period in prison with a minimum parole term of six years.

The charge came after an incident near Albany Park railway station car park on April 4 when a British Transport Police officer on a motorcycle attempted to stop the driver of a stolen Land Rover Discovery.

PC Keith Board, 30, suffered a badly bruised collar bone and arm and was unable to work for several weeks. Sexton was arrested and charged on April 6.

PC Board said: "I had a very lucky escape."
