Officers pursued the vehicle around the villages of Scriven, Scotton and Farnham. A man in his 30s ran off on foot, but police chased after him and he was detained a short time later. He was arrested on suspicion of dangerous driving, failing to stop for the police and drug driving. He was interviewed in custody and later released under investigation. Sgt Paul Cording, who was roads policing supervision on Saturday, said:

“I am very grateful that no members of the public were hurt and we have arrested one individual. “This behaviour on our roads is completely unacceptable and we will continue to be relentless in our approach to targeting drivers who fail to abide by the law.”
