Teen banned from driving over nine-mile Guildford police chase

Published by the Eagle Radio News Team at 4:06pm 27th February 2020. (Updated at 7:29pm 27th February 2020)

An 18-year-old has been banned from driving and fined after leading Surrey Police on a nine-mile chase.

Officers, including armed response, pursued a Vauxhall Corsa after it failed to stop on The Street in Guildford at around 3.30am on Sunday 2 February.

Police used stopping tactics to bring the chase to an end, before the driver was arrested and later charged with drink driving and failing to stop.

Surrey Police said the teenager appeared at Guildford Magistrates court on Tuesday (25 February) where he admitted both offences.

He was disqualified from driving for 12 months and ordered to pay costs and fines.
