Newcastle Bigg Market: Man 'mowed down' by car
Police are searching for a man who was apparently deliberately run over by a driver in Newcastle.
Footage on social media shows the pedestrian being thrown into lamppost when a car hits him at high speed before being driven off from the scene.
It happened just after 21:00 BST on Saturday following a confrontation on Groat Market.
Northumbria Police are also hunting for the driver and said "robust action" will be taken against anyone involved.
The video taken by a member of the public starts by showing a woman hitting a car's windscreen with her high heel as two men get into the vehicle.
The car takes off at speed, mounts the pavement, and subsequently nearly hits a man and causes the woman to fall to the floor.
The man then chases the vehicle before it stops, reverses and drives straight into him.
