News Agenda

This report doesn't seem to reflect credit on some police officers, but a careful reading seems to suggest that:
i) Yes, the driver was unbelted, therefore liable to be stopped.
ii) It took an eight-mile 17 minute chase and the deployment of a Stinger to bring him to a halt.
iii) He pleaded guilty to a number of traffic offences.

Purely on this report, and being otherwise unaware of the facts, I think these PCs ought to be cut a bit of slack. They had no idea what to expect from the driver, who could have avoided the whole business by stopping and speaking to the officers.
