Officers gave chase, but the driver entered a water-filled ditch and then ran towards a wooded area near Raymond Mays Way.

During the search for him drone pilots picked up a heat source in a nearby pond.

The man, who had tried to conceal himself underwater, was continually instructed to ‘get out of the water’ and told a dog would be sent in.

He then went towards the edge of the pond and was helped to stand up by two other officers.

A 22-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of failing to stop, driving while unfit through drink or drugs and possessing class A and B controlled drugs.

He remained in custody and received medical attention, and has now been bailed while inquiries continue.
