Footage of a near-fatal hit and run in which a man appears to be crushed against a wall has been released to help track down the driver.

Nottinghamshire Police said it was "unbelievable" that the victim only only minor injuries, given the nature of the incident.

"Had the car not struck the electric box this incident could easily have ended in tragedy," said Detective Constable Kelly Holloway.

The video shows a dark-coloured Skoda Octavia car mount the pavement and hit the victim, before reversing and driving off.

The hit and run took place on Leeming Street in Mansfield, in the early hours of April 6.

"There are people in the video who witnessed what took place. We need to hear from them so they can help us find the person responsible."

Police believe the driver may have been involved in an earlier altercation with people outside a pub.
