Dramatic M32 police chase after driver fled London in stolen car

A driver made off from a London police station in a stolen car before being chased down the M32 in Bristol and arrested.

The stolen vehicle was caught on an ANPR camera on the motorway and was eventually brought to a stop by police with a stinger after a ‘short pursuit.’ The driver and passenger were arrested for theft of the vehicle displaying false plates, where police found drugs.

A tweet by Avon and Somerset Police Roads Policing Unit reads: “Driver made off from @metpoliceuk #London. Vehicle hit ANPR on M32 #Bristol, covertly followed, @ASPBristol ahead with a stinger.
