A second man, Rocco Sansome, 20, of Birstall, Leicestershire, was also found guilty of kidnap. He was sentenced to 21 months in prison. The attorney general is reviewing the “lenient” sentence given to a man whose then-girlfriend was left with life-altering brain injuries when she fell out of a van after he kidnapped her. Horrific video footage showed the moment Ms Lynn was forcibly picked up by Bowskill and taken into a silver Transit van, which was driven off at pace by Sansome. CCTV showed Angel Lynn, 19, being carried away and put into a van by her abusive ex-boyfriend Chay Bowskill, 20. Police said Ms Lynn exited the vehicle at some point in the journey and she now requires “round the clock care” due to the injuries she suffered. Lynn later fell from the vehicle, which was travelling at 60mph, and was left with severe brain damage. In a statement confirming the sentence would be reviewed, a spokeswoman for the Attorney General’s office said: “We have received a request for this sentence to be considered under the Unduly Lenient Sentence (ULS) scheme. He is shown grabbing her from behind in a bear hug and carrying her back across the road in in Mountsorrel, Leicestershire, before bundling her into the van.

“The Law Officers have 28 days from sentencing to consider the case and make a decision. Following the ruling, attorney general Suella Braverman has received a complaint that the sentence is unduly lenient and will now examine the case before deciding whether to refer it to the court of appeal, which would then decide if it should be increased.

CCTV captured the moment Bowskill chased her after she walked off during an argument, before grabbing her from behind and bundling her into a van. That future has sadly been taken away from her. Lynn later fell out of the vehicle as it was travelling at 60mph at 10. “The catastrophic injuries Angel suffered will mean life will never be the same for her or our family.45am before she was discovered by members of the public. That future has sadly been taken away from her.

“Every day is not only a huge struggle for Angel but also a huge struggle for our family and friends. “We are lucky in some ways as we are a close family, we have lots of lovely friends who help us and people that care in other ways. She suffered a fractured skull and brain injuries, is still unable to walk or talk, requires round-the-clock care and is unlikely to ever make a full recovery. She suffered a fractured skull and brain injuries, is still unable to walk or talk, requires round-the-clock care and is unlikely to ever make a full recovery.” The statement continued: “We try to remain strong but we know that every day will be difficult and a struggle for us all especially for Angel. “I know that Angel will never get married now and I will never get to walk my daughter down the aisle. Jurors were shown the CCTV footage and heard how Bowskill “bombarded her with repulsive, degrading messages, sometimes within a timespan of a few hours,” and “controlled her freedom of movement by a variety of means and she was not allowed any sort of life apart” from him. “Nikki and I will never be grandparents to Angel’s children. Bowskill was also convicted of coercive and controlling behaviour, as well as perverting the course of justice, but was cleared of causing grievous bodily harm.’ He added: ‘I know that Angel will never get married now and I will never get to walk my daughter down the aisle.

“We don’t know what the future holds for our daughter but we try to put smiles on our faces each day but inside our hearts are bleeding out. Prosecutors alleged Bowskill had thrown his partner out of the van, but it could not be proved how Lynn fell from the vehicle.” Detective Chief Inspector Tony Yarwood, from the East Midlands Special Operations Unit Major Crime team, said: “Angel is a young woman who had plans and aspirations in place and the rest of her life to look forward to. Because of the extent of her injuries she now faces constant medical treatment and round the clock care.
