A DANGEROUS driver who raced through city streets at more than 80 miles an hour has been returned to prison and ordered to do an extra 14 months inside.

Connor Glenwright, 21, who was on parole for robbery, reached speeds of more than 80mph during the pursuit through York. At one point he smashed into another car and drove on the wrong side of the road after police tried to arrest him in connection with other offences. Finally he was trapped by police near the Knavesmire race course.

Glenwright was recalled to prison after he was charged with dangerous driving, having no insurance and no licence. He was banned from driving for four years, seven months. Dashcam and CCTV footageof the pursuit has been put on the North Yorkshire police website as a warning, https://northyorkshire.police.uk/news/dangerous-york-driver-jailed/

Traffic Constable Leanne Anderson said: "The footage is a stark reminder of the lengths some criminals go to. An innocent motorist’s vehicle was damaged, which must’ve been very distressing but fortunately nobody was injured as a result of Glenwright’s horrific driving, which has no place on North Yorkshire's roads."
