Shocking moment robber ploughs into car wash workers brawling with brother after armed raid goes wrong

Sickening CCTV footage shows thug Aaron McLoughlin, 23, smashing into the crowd brawling with brother Ben Taylor, 26, at a car wash in Addlestone, Surrey.

The pair, both former employees, had attempted to threaten staff at The Original Car Spa into handing over cash during the robbery in October last year.

Taylor, who had left the a recovery programme offered by the car wash just days earlier, screamed: "Give me the f***ing money".

But brave workers piled in to help owner Alastair Stott and his son Jordan who restrained Taylor in the forecourt.

McLoughlin is then seen speeding his black Ford Focus at the group — sending two people into a wall.

Valet Jordan, then 20, tries to wrestle him out of the driver's seat but he is thrown across the car park.

Taylor manages to get into the car and the pair escaped.

But cops tracked down the motor to the house of McLoughlin's girlfriend and the pair were traced to Eastbourne, East Sussex.

Detectives found eight wraps of heroin, each weighing an eighth of a gram, in Taylor's bag.

Taylor was jailed today jailed for four-and-a-half years at Guildford Crown Court for attempted robbery, assault by beating and possession of a class A drug.

McLoughlin was jailed for 20 months for dangerous driving after both pleaded guilty on Monday.

Mr Stott, who owns The Original Car Spa, praised staff at the time of the attack, saying he was "very proud" of their bravery.

DCI Lloyd Ives of Surrey Police said: "This was an incredibly vicious and targeted attempted robbery by two men who thought they would get away with easy money from their former employers.

"What they didn't bargain on was the self-defence shown by the victims in this case, however those victims were incredibly lucky not to have suffered more severe injuries having been driven at.

"Fortunately the events were captured on CCTV and showed the entire incident which proves how important it is to make sure your security systems are working and up to date."
