The evil boyfriend of Angel Lynn who bundled her into a van and left her with brain damage has had his sentence increased.

Chay Bowskill will now be serving a 16 year and three month sentence after initially being served a seven-and-a-half year sentence.

The 19-year-old was tragically left unable to walk or feed herself after her ruthless boyfriend kidnapped her in September 2020.

After being bundled into the van by Bowskill and his friend Rocco Sansome, she fell out on the A6 while driving 60mph.

Angel Lynn suffered severe brain injuries and a fractured skull, needing round-the-clock care and is unlikely to ever make a full recovery.

Bowskill was convicted of controlling behaviour towards the 19-year-old in their year-long relationship.

In released CCTV footage of the incident, Bowskill can be seen grabbing Angel "like a rag doll", carrying her across a busy street and throwing her into the back of a white Transit van, which speeds off.

Bowskill's mum Kathy Norris, 58, previously said "he's not a bad boy" despite the fact that Bowskill "laughed" in the courtroom as he was sentenced to his original seven and a half years in prison.

Kathy told previously told The Sun Online that the shocking incident in September 2020 took place after her son had "dumped" Angel during a tense conversation at a petrol station in Mountsorrel, Leicestershire, while trying to do a car deal at an adjoining garage, after the pair had together for over a year.

She said: “Everyone is blaming Clay for her injuries but he didn't cause them. I can't blame my son for her injuries, I need to protect him and stand by him.

“But he is being branded an evil kidnapper, and while he took Angel it was to protect her not hurt her. In the eyes of the law that is kidnap but the sentence he was given is too long.

“My son’s not a bad boy but he's not a saint."
