Police dashcam footage

Paul Whyatt (57) of Wisbech Road, Thorney, was jailed for dangerous driving and further offences at Peterborough Crown Court last week.

The police dashcam (one minute 30 seconds in) shows the moment in April 2015 when gym owner Whyatt speeds away from police while travelling between Sawtry and Huntingdon.

The dashcam also shows Whyatt in a second police chase, and this time he reaches dangerous speeds travelling on the A47 into Thorney and out through the other side of the village.
