Police have released dramatic footage of a pursuit in Scarborough that led to a man being jailed.

26 year old Abraham Fox was sentenced to 17 months in prison at York Crown Court earlier this month and was also given a four year driving ban.

It's after officer tried to stop him as he was driving his black Volkswagen Golf in the Eastfield area on 12 July. 

He failed to stop and was driving dangerously at speed, until the pursuit came to an end at Seamer. 

Fox was found guilty of dangerous driving, driving without a licence and driving with no insurance. 

Judge Andrew Stubbs QC told him:

“You did everything you could to evade capture, driving at ridiculous speeds and (driving) dangerously, over many miles.

It’s a miracle that nobody was seriously hurt.”
