Police in West Yorkshire were involved in one of the more unusual chases when they went in pursuit of a classic car on the streets of Bradford.

The 51-year-old stolen Morris Minor was pursued by police through the Fagley area of the city, attempting dangerous manoeuvres a number of times in an attempt to escape.

The video has been viewed more than 10,000 times on Twitter, with social media users stunned by the footage.

And while the driver led a charmed life at the junction, the West Yorkshire Police Roads Policing Unit confirmed the vehicle was eventually secured, tweeting: “The pursuit lasted quite a while but thankfully the vehicle was recovered safely without damage.”

Meanwhile, colleagues from Derbyshire expressed their thoughts on the subject succinctly.

Wow indeed.
