Father describes attempted carjack ordeal

Footage has emerged of a man preventing a carjacker from stealing his vehicle with his three-year-old son inside.

As Tahir Mehmood came out of an Aldi supermarket in Manchester, he saw his car reversing out of the car park while his wife and five-year-old son - who had been forced out - looked on.

Mr Mehmood then sprinted towards his car and jumped in the passenger seat before tackling the would-be thief.

The man struggled before fleeing down Garrett Way towards Gorton monastery.
