In the early hours of this morning (Sunday, December 31) at around 2.27am, police arrested a male driver in North Lynn for failing to stop after a short pursuit.

They later found the man had been driving whilst disqualified, had no insurance and took the vehicle without consent.

A police spokesman said: “He had taken his mother’s car without her permission.

“When we attempted to stop him he reversed at speed and tried to turn the car around and escape, fortunately we safely blocked his car and quickly arrested him.”

The passenger of the car was also arrested for possession of cannabis and on suspicion of taking the car without consent. Both were taken to the town’s police investigation centre.
