Dramatic video shows moment high-speed police chase comes to an end on Colwick Loop Road


Police have released a dramatic new video that shows the moment a city-centre police chase comes to an end on Colwick Loop Road.

The footage shows the driver trying to escape officers by doing a U-turn in roadworks put in place to allow for the construction of the Gedling Access Road on Burton Road near Burton Joyce.

The police car stops him in his tracks by hitting the side of his car to end the pursuit. 

Officers safely stopped the vehicle after it was driven dangerously through red lights and on the wrong side of the road during rush hour traffic.

The driver of the BMW failed to stop for officers and narrowly missed a number of vehicles as the vehicle sped through the streets.

Officers had tried to get the vehicle to pull over after its number plate was recognised by cameras in connection with an offence, but when it continued driving a pursuit was authorised which lasted more around 30-minutes across various parts of the city including Mapperley, Arnold and Sneinton.

The pursuit was brought to a safe conclusion on Colwick Loop Road by armed response vehicles using tactical contact on the vehicle.

A 32-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of breaching a restraining order, dangerous driving and failing to stop.

Inspector Mark Stanley, of Nottinghamshire Police, praised officers across the force who bravely stopped the vehicle last night.

He said: “Thankfully, despite some narrow misses, no members of the public, officers who gave chase or the suspect himself were injured. There was slight damage to the police vehicle involved.

“The man was arrested for the outstanding matters and relevant driving offences. He remains in police custody.”
