Police, including the dog unit, cordoned off Verbena Road at about 10pm on Wednesday night.

Multiple vehicles were at the scene, while a 4x4 with its hazard lights on and bonnet slightly open was also in the road.

Police said a vehicle initially failed to stop for police on Round House Way, leading to a short pursuit.

It then crashed into a fence on Verbena Road, with the occupant of the car fleeing the scene.
