A thug who mowed down and crippled a man after being kicked out of a party has been jailed for 10 years.

Andrew Vanhorne, 40, revved up his Volkswagen Bora and drove at speed at partygoers standing outside a house on Markington Street, Moss Side, in revenge for a minor slight.

He ploughed into innocent bystander Carlisle Rock, 47, leaving him with devastating leg injuries.

Another witness, Claudine Henry, was also hit by the car and suffered an ankle injury. The car crashed through the front wall and into the living room before Vanhorne reversed and sped away.

The court heard that the violence came after a partygoer had teased Vanhorne about the necklace he was wearing.
