Watch as driver with four flat tyres heads into oncoming traffic as he goes wrong way down motorway in police chase | The Sun

World News

THIS is the shocking moment a driver with four flat tyres hurtles the wrong way down a motorway during a terrifying police chase.

Harry Hosker, 27, was arrested after the pursuit which started at around 7.50pm on July 20 in Cheshire.

Officers were on patrol in Culcheth, Warrington, when they saw a black Volkswagen Golf with false number plates.

They pursued the vehicle as it pulled out of Holdcroft Lane and travelled on Warrington Road.

A stinger was then used to slow Hosker as his car entered the Birchwood area.

But despite all four tyres being flat, extraordinary footage shows how the driver refused to stop.

Carnage then erupts as a police vehicle tries to block the car before Hosker charges down a slip road and onto the M62 motorway.

He proceeds to bolt the wrong way down the motorway between junctions 11 and 10, as police pursue him along the other carriageway.

Hosker eventually stopped in an emergency refuge bay near junction 10 before abandoning the car and charging into a field.

Dramatic bodycam footage shows an officer leave his car on the motorway to give chase as he screams "stay there" across the carriageway.
