A motorist who sped past patrols at 130mph was arrested after failing to stop for police on the M2 in Sittingbourne.

The patrol observed the motorist driving erratically shortly before 9.40pm on Monday 24 January 2022 and signalled for him to stop. The car failed to stop for the officers and continued until the driver pulled over and attempted to run away. He was caught and failed a roadside drugs swipe for cannabis and cocaine.

The man, who is in his twenties and from Sittingbourne, was arrested on suspicion of driving whilst unfit through drugs, dangerous driving and failing to stop for police. He has been released under investigation pending the results of toxicology reports.
