A drone was dispatched on Tuesday to find a driver who fled from police through fields.

Officers were called to Thurston on Tuesday morning after a car failed to stop.

A spokesman for Suffolk police said a Peugeout 306 made off from officers and was travelling at a high speed.

Officers were involved in a short pursuit with the car before it was driven off road.

The driver then got out of the car and made off into the surrounding field.
