 A hit-and-run driver crashed into and seriously injured an elderly man on a zebra crossing - only to learn later it was her father-in-law she had left lying in agony.

Fatheha Begum Abedin was distracted because she was using her phone when she ploughed into her 61-year-old relative in the Highfields area of Leicester in February 2018.

But instead of stopping to help him, she kept on driving. The shocking incident was captured on CCTV and led to a high-profile police appeal to find the driver responsible.

Abedin began to concoct the first of a series of lies she hoped would cover up what she had done.

Abedin was jailed for six months for the dangerous driving offence and 12 months for perverting the course of justice.

The sentences will be served consecutively, making a total of 18 months.

She was also banned from driving for two years and nine months.
