A driver who tried to run away from police after refusing to stop his car when asked was arrested - after he ran into a dead end.

Norwich police had asked the driver to stop on Tuesday morning in the Waddington Street area of the city, as part of their Operation Moonshot initiative.

But the man failed to stop and then got out of his car to try to run away from police.

However, Norwich police tweeted that the man had run into a dead end.

They said he had been "detained for numerous driving offences in the Waddington Street area".
