POLICE HAVE released CCTV film which shows a courier being run down by a thief who stole her van.
The horrific footage of the incident, which occurred in Biggin Hill on January 21, has now been released by detectives who are appealing for witnesses.
The 22-year-old delivery driver left the keys in her transit van as she made a delivery to Sunningdale Avenue.
The opportunistic thief then jumped in the vehicle and drove off, running her over as she tried to stop him making his escape.
The driver, who is still unable to return to work, suffered a broken ankle and a shattered kneecap requiring operations and a lengthy stay in hospital.
The van was recovered the same day five miles away in Waldens Close in Orpington.
Detective Constable Chris Taylor said: “We would like to speak with anyone who has any information, who may have seen the van or anyone who was in the Sunningdale Avenue, Loxwood Close or Waldens Close areas in the early afternoon of 21 January.”
