Appeal after police cars rammed by car driven dangerously in Yate

Did you witness a silver Seat Leon being driven dangerously in Yate on Monday afternoon?

The driver rammed two police cars shortly after 2.30pm on Westerleigh Road before driving off at speed.

It was then driven dangerously on the A4174 towards Keynsham, colliding with a number of vehicles and driving the wrong way around a roundabout.

Additional units were deployed and pursued the vehicle for a short distance before losing sight of it.

The police helicopter was also called in to assist in the search but they were unable to locate it.

Thankfully, we’ve not had reports of any vehicles being significantly damaged or anyone sustaining any significant injuries.

Anyone who witnessed any part of the incident, or who has any other information which could help us locate those inside the vehicle, is asked to call 101 and provide the call handler with the reference 5221206396.
