Whilst waiting for the cars to be recovered, a car drives past with the driver using his mobile. The car then fails to stop ✋ and a pursuit ensues. The driver crashes into railings.

“The driver is detained after a short chase. Car is full of drugs and cash. Driver is arrested failing to stop, supply of drugs, drug driving and dangerous driving. Great way to end the shift.”
