Police have arrested a 20-year-old man in connection with a dangerous driving incident in Stowmarket.

Officers on patrol in Tavern Street stopped a white Renault Clio at around 2.40pm on Tuesday.

But the driver of the vehicle allegedly failed to cooperate so police pursued the car through Onehouse Road, Windermere Road, Kingsmead Road and St Edmunds Road before mounting a pavement.

It is alleged that the car then entered a walkway leading to Gainsborough Road forcing a pedestrian to get out of the way.

Police then called the pursuit off because they feared it could be dangerous for other members of the public.

They later seized the car for being uninsured after they found it abandoned near Delius Close at around 3.50pm.

The arrested man, from Stowmarket, was taken to Bury St Edmunds Police Investigation Centre for questioning but has since been released under investigation pending further enquiries.

Witnesses or anyone with information should contact the Stowmarket Neighbourhood Response Team on 101 quoting reference 32488/17.
