A woman was dragged along the ground by her own vehicle when two men stole it during a test drive in Hampshire.

The 45-year-old victim had listed her Range Rover Sport on Auto Trader.

Two men came to her house in Hook and went out on a test drive before the driver asked the woman to take over as he was nervous about going fast.

But as she got out of the 4x4, outside Greenfields Junior School on 25 July, the man drove off while the other hit the door on her hand as she clung on.

She was treated in hospital and suffered swelling and bruising to her left wrist and pain in her shoulder.

Police have released an e-fit of the man who had been driving the 4x4.

The woman had been initially contacted by one man who arrived at her home with a friend who he said was a mechanic.

The pair were driving a grey or silver five series BMW.

Officers believe the 4x4 may be in the Reading, Surrey or Kent area.

Both men are described as possibly Asian, aged between 28 and 30, one was of slim build while the other of medium build with both having short dark hair.
