Police chase through Formby with 13 Police cars and the helicopter


Merseyside Police can confirm that a 35-year-old man from Huyton has been arrested on suspicion of a range of offences including attempt abduction, attempt serious assault of a police officer, dangerous driving, criminal damage and driving whilst over the prescribed limit for a specified drug. Officers were called by a member of the public, who reported that they had seen the driver of a small white van approach a teenage girl in the Litherland area of Liverpool. The girl had walked off from the van, but the driver then started to drive slowly around the area. A police patrol attended the scene just after 7.30pm and saw the van, which then rammed a police car and drove towards a Police officer at the roadside, before being driven off at speed down Hatton Hill Road towards the roundabout. The driver of the patrol car was uninjured, but shaken up following the collision. The car was spotted by another patrol car a few minutes later and a pursuit took place through Formby and Southport. At times, the driver of the van was seen to drive on the wrong side of the Formby Bypass in addition to driving the wrong way around numerous roundabouts in the face of oncoming traffic. Stop sticks were successfully deployed to stop the car and at 8.15pm it came to a stop outside the railway station on London Street, Southport, where the driver was arrested. Following the incident the Force has received a call from a member of the public whose car was damaged by the offender’s vehicle. Officers have also been contacted by the family of the teenage girl, who was approached by the male and investigations are continuing. Anyone who has any information which may help the police with their inquiries is asked to contact Sefton C.I.D. 0151 7773835, or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 quoting reference number: 0516240614.
