Leeds Crown Court heard that officers decided to stop a Toyota Yaris for a check after seeing it in Wakefield Road on December 2 last year but it sped away from them ignoring their blue lights.

The driver, Mohammed Akel, 45, of Moorlands Terrace, Dewsbury,turned into Old Bank Road reaching 50mph in the 30 mile limit.
