West Mercia Police say the red car was travelling from the West Midlands to Telford 'transporting drugs' last night when it was spotted by officers.

They used a spike strip to burst a tyre but the driver still tried to get away, they said.

A police BMW X5 then brought the car to a stop using a "tactical tickle".
