VIDEO: Dramatic helicopter footage shows high-speed police chase

Northumbria Police said Wayne Young, 29, was jailed at Newcastle Crown Court after ‘some of the worst driving’ officers have seen.

He drove so dangerously the force had to abort an initial pursuit while he also clipped an oil tanker, drove into marked police cars and raced through fields and along cycle lanes.

Footage from the National Police Air Service showed Young racing through the west end of Newcastle, speeding along back alleys in an attempt to escape traffic cars.
