POLICE in the UK have released CCTV footage of a hit and run rampage across Cardiff that killed a mother-of-three.

Matthew Tvrdon’s white van is seen crashing into police cars and ploughing through a busy junction.

 

During the rampage Karina Menzies was killed and 17 others injured before the driver was brought to a halt.

 

The police are seen making several attempts to stop the white van, before finally ramming him to a stop.

 

Tvrdon was finally arrested after being pulled from the van.

 

Tvrdon, who has paranoid schizophrenia, has admitted manslaughter on the grounds of diminished responsibility at Cardiff Crown Court.

 

He has also admitted seven counts of attempted murder and other charges including three counts of grievous bodily harm with intent.

 

He has yet to be sentenced
