A man is fighting for his life in hospital after he was dragged by a stolen white van in Coventry.

The man was seen hanging from the white Transit van’s windscreen just before 1pm on Monday at the junction of Caludon Road and Swan Lane.

The vehicle then made off, leaving the critically injured man on the ground.

He was taken to University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire where he is in a life-threatening condition, according to West Midlands Police.

Officers said their investigation was at an early stage and enquiries were under way to trace the van and the people responsible.

Officers have urged anyone who witnessed what happened or saw the van being driven off to contact West Midlands Police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
