A man has been jailed for 27 years for the murder of an ex-Royal Navy officer he ran over as he stole his car in a botched robbery.

Mr Samwell suffered fatal injuries to his heart and chest and was pronounced dead in hospital.
Gibbons was found guilty of murder by a jury at Manchester Crown Court on Tuesday.
He had pleaded guilty to burglary and aggravated vehicle taking but denied murder.
