The heir to a family funfair business who mowed down his colleague has been told to spend extra time behind bars. Harry Jones left victim Daniel Tulley will 'severe long-term injuries which will impact his life forever'.

The pair arranged over social media to fight before Jones rammed a car into his victim, causing him to fly off the bonnet. The convict fled the scene following the 'heinous' ordeal, which left Mr Tulley needing emergency surgery to his brain.

Jones, from Cradley Heath, was jailed for 10 years for grievous bodily harm with intent when he appeared at Wolverhampton Crown Court on July 21. But his jail term was branded 'unduly lenient' and referred to the Attorney General.

He has now been told he must spend even longer in prison. The Solicitor General Michael Tomlinson KC MP said: "Jones may have been a respectable local businessman but his actions that day were utterly deplorable.

"His personal dispute with Mr Tulley has left him with severe long-term injuries which will impact his life forever. The court also took a dim view of Jones’ heinous actions and has increased his prison term, sending a stark warning that leaving someone for dead has serious consequences."

Wolverhampton Crown Court previously heard how Jones had fallen out with Mr Tulley, with the pair arranging over social media to have a fight. Jones drove to Mr Tulley’s home in Bloxwich where he threatened his partner on November 4, 2019.

He then tracked down Mr Tulley, locating him in Clayhanger Road, Brownhills. The incident came to a shocking end when Mr Tulley was struck by a car and then thrown from the bonnet when the vehicle came to a stop.

Jones fled the scene without checking on his victim, who was left with serious injuries and needed emergency brain surgery. Mr Tulley spent more than a month in hospital and has been left with serious long-term injuries, the Attorney General's Office said.

The Court of Appeal increased the sentence handed to Jones on Tuesday, November 14. After being referred under the Unduly Lenient Sentences scheme it was increased to 14 years custody.

Under the scheme, members of the public can ask for a crown court sentence to be reviewed if they think it is too low. The Attorney General's Office reviews the request and decides whether the case should be sent to the Court of Appeal. Judges at the Court of Appeal can increase the sentence or keep it the same.
