Police are searching for a driver who was pursued for nearly 10 minutes after failing to stop for police.

Officers attempted to stop the driver of a red S-registration Volkswagen Golf along Burton End, Haverhill, at around 10.20am yesterday.

A police spokesman said this was because the driver was not wearing a seatbelt.

The driver failed to stop, resulting in a pursuit lasting nearly 10 minutes – with the driver reported to have been witnessed driving at excessive speeds.

Police were pursuing the car until Castle Camps in Cambridgeshire where it was subsequently lost.

It has not been disclosed how much over the speed limit the motorist was going.

Officers have issued an appeal for anyone in the area who witnessed the car or its whereabouts, or has any dashboard camera footage of the car.
