Carjacked GP saves his bag
A GP who was carjacked after he gave a lift to a man who had just crashed a stolen car managed to snatch his medical bag from the back seat as his assailant sped away.
Dr Howard Kennedy, a GP in Newcastleton, Roxburgh-shire, was returning from a night visit when he gave a lift to Derek Telford, who had crashed the car into a bridge. During the drive Telford held a knife to Dr Kennedy's throat and demanded the keys.
Dr Kennedy said: 'I was aware I had controlled drugs in my bag and felt I needed to get it in case I had to attend other patients.'
Telford was jailed for three years.
