A 25-year-old man has been jailed after he ran another man over in his van, causing him serious injuries.

The 21-year-old victim suffered leg, arm and head injuries when he was hit in Guildford by the van driven by Raymond Harms.

Harms pleaded guilty to causing grievous bodily harm, damaging property and dangerous driving at an earlier Guildford Crown Court hearing.

He was jailed for a total of six years and four months.

Harms, of Yew Tree Drive, Guildford, was also banned from driving for eight years and two months.

Two other men from Guildford were also sentenced for their involvement in the attack in Bowers Farm Drive, Burpham on 12 May.

Ian Vase, 29, of Pond Meadow, who pleaded guilty to affray, was jailed for six months.

Shaun Ritson, 31, of Lime Grove, who admitted threatening behaviour, was given a 12-month community order including 120 hours' unpaid work.

The charges also related to incidents that took place in Lawrence Close the same evening.
