Harry Redknapp: Ran over his wife

Harry Redknapp’s wife returned home from hospital with her ankle in plaster yesterday after she was run over by a Range Rover driven by the former Tottenham boss.

Sandra Redknapp, 69, apparently got her coat caught in the car as Harry pulled away whilst dropping her off for a shopping trip in Westbourne.

Speaking to the BBC, the former Bournemouth, West Ham and Portsmouth boss said: “It was just a freak accident you know.

“Sandra went across the road and unfortunately she had gone behind the car to cross over the road and as I went to drive off I drove over her ankle.

“Its lucky, if the full weight of the car had gone over the ankle god knows what would have happened to her. We’re ok.

“She had an operation on her ankle that went well.”

The Sun newspaper yesterday reported Mrs Redknapp “yelling in pain” as she fell to the ground in Poole Road, Bournemouth.

South Western Ambulance Service confirmed crews were called to Poole Road, in the Westbourne area, at 11:49 BST.

Her son Jamie told the Daily Mail: “My mum is back home and on the way to a full recovery. The only thing she is upset about is that she might not be fit to go to watch Louise on Strictly this Saturday. She doesn’t like to miss it.”

The couple returned home 24 hours after the accident took place and Mrs Redknapp was pictured walking on crutches with her right leg in a cast.
