A man was arrested this morning (Monday) on suspicion of driving under the influence of drugs following a pursuit in Ramsey.

Police were on patrol in Great Whyte at about 7.30am when they saw a driver they suspected of breaking the speed limit.

When they attempted to stop the vehicle, however, the driver failed to stop and a chase ensued.

A spokesman for police said: “The vehicle failed to stop for officers and a pursuit began, before the driver turned down a dead end on Sargeants Close.

“The driver then ran from officers on foot and was found inside a house nearby thanks to information provided by a member of the public.”
