This is the shocking moment a Bethnal Green man ran down a neighbour who complained about noise at a party, hitting three of his own family.

Footage shows Yasin Ahmed, 23, of Florida Street, trying to scare the victim by reversing at him and then driving into him at speed.

The brutal attack broke the man’s ribs, left the family members with minor injuries and was “just feet away” from hitting a number of young children, police said.

Ahmed was today sentenced to six years and nine months’ in prison after pleading guilty to grievous bodily harm with intent, dangerous driving and three counts of assault.

Snaresbrook Crown Court heard how at about 8.15pm on Monday, August 7, Ahmed was at a party in Gaverick Mews, Isle of Dogs, when the neighbour complained.
