A motorist fled from police when officers tried to pull him over earlier this morning.

And although it looks likethey had an unsuccessful getaway after crashing their silver BMW down an embankment in Halstead Road, Ribbleton, they actually got away.

Lancashire's Road Policing Unit tweeted this picture shortly before 2am and said: "Driver of this car was prepared to drive into a ravine in Ribbleton rather than stop for #ST33.

"Not worth it just for no documents! #T2RPU"

A spokesman said 'enquiries are ongoing' to find the driver.
