A runaway driver crashed into six cars, mounted the pavement and refused to stop for police - and now police are appealing for witnesses.

Officers in Essex are hoping the occupants of a dark coloured hatchback, possibly a Vauxhall Corsa, may have seen the chase and could help with their investigations.

Police attempted to pull over a blue Mazda 6 in Railway Street at 5.10pm on Wednesday, March 6.

The car failed to stop, drove along a pavement and collided with six other vehicles as the driver tried to escape.

The two men who were in the Mazda then ran off and were later seen climbing over nearby gardens. They are still at large.

Fortunately, no one was seriously hurt, however, one man was taken to hospital for precautionary checks.

Offcers would now like to talk to witnesses who were near the one way section next to Argos when the Mazda 6 mounted the pavement.
