Appeal over woman, 76, 'carjacked'

A 76-year-old woman has been seriously injured after a suspected carjacking in which she was run over by her own car.

Dorothy Cooper got out of her vehicle in a car park off Sandy Lane in Royton, Oldham at about 13:50 BST on Wednesday when she was told there was a problem with it, witnesses told police.

As she was checking her white Hyundai i10, a man allegedly jumped in and drove over her.

A man, 45, has been arrested on suspicion of assault.
