A driver who took Lancashire Police on a 120mph chase earlier this week has been arrested on suspicion of five offences.

On Tuesday, Lancashire Police officers signalled for a Volkswagen Passat to stop in Nelson, having noticed it was speeding.

The driver then failed to do so – leading police on a pursuit, reaching speeds over double the speed limit on a 30mph road, before travelling at up to 120 mph on the M65.
