A man who drove into four people in the city centre last August has been jailed for 20 years

Manchester Crown Court heard that Aqab Hussain used his car as a "lethal weapon" during the attack on John Dalton Street in August 2012.

Michael Ward, who was blind before the incident, suffered life changing injuries - he was in intensive care for 20 days and then 4 months in a high dependency unit.

Paul Hulme and Martin Harris were also hit by the car. Thomas Mallanphy was able to step out of the way just in time.

Hussain was arrested six weeks after the attack at Manchester Airport, shortly after getting off a flight from Pakistan. He'll be sentenced in a few weeks time.

CCTV of the attack was released by Greater Manchester Police.
