Det Con Clare Sylvester-Wyness of Swindon CID said: "This was an horrific offence which has left the victim with long-lasting physical and psychological injuries.

"Not only did Goodchild inflict these injuries deliberately in an unprovoked attack, using his car as a weapon, but he also then fled the scene and was subject of a county-wide manhunt in the days that followed.

"I welcome the sentence. I know that nothing will ever undo the damage he has caused his victim, but I hope this reassures the victim that justice has been done."
