Sunderland wheelchair car park prank caught on CCTV

A woman has been handed a two-year driving ban after she was caught on CCTV dragging a man in a wheelchair behind her car.

Maria Adams drove up and down the car park of Tesco in Roker, Sunderland, as her friend held on to a towel hanging out of the boot of her Nissan Juke.

Newcastle Crown Court heard her friend did not require a wheelchair and had jumped in one owned by the store.

Judge Penny Moreland said the driving was a "piece of stupidity".
