Man who drove car into nightclub sentenced to 28 years

A man who drove his car onto a packed dance floor after being kicked out of a nightclub has been convicted of attempted murder.

Mohammed Abdul, 21, said he felt "humiliated" after being ejected from Blake's nightclub in Gravesend, Kent, on 17 March last year.

He returned and was caught on CCTV inside the club as he drove his Suzuki Vitara past bouncers, down an alleyway packed with clubbers and then ploughed into the venue itself.

Abdul, of Deptford in south-east London, said he only wanted to "make a nuisance of himself to get his own back on the door staff".

He was convicted of two counts of attempted murder following his re-trial at Maidstone Crown Court on Wednesday, court officials confirmed.

He is due to be sentenced on Thursday.

A camera inside the club shows the vehicle's front lights getting closer as dancers inside were unaware the car was headed for them.

The car rams into one man from behind, throwing him onto the bonnet, as others run for safety.

The vehicle then reverses, with its registration plate hanging off the front.

Some clubbers attempted to swarm the vehicle, while others are visibly distressed.
