Officers launched a high-speed pursuit as the driver tried to evade arrest by driving erratically through the streets of St Annes and Lytham.

The stolen car, which was speeding on rims with two deflated tyres, was no match for police who overtook the vehicle in Shepherd Road in Lytham.

Dramatic footage released by Lancashire Police shows police skillfully manoeuvring to block the road, forcing the stolen car to a sudden stop.

But in a last desperate attempt to escape arrest, the driver can be seen suddenly accelerating and ramming into the stationary police car.

The officers escaped uninjured and swiftly apprehended the driver.

Brian Horan, from Blackpool, was arrested and charged with a total of 11 offences.

The 40-year-old has been sentenced to 26 month in prison and has been handed a four-year driving ban.
