A driver was arrested on suspicion of dangerous driving, failing to stop for police, driving whilst unfit through drugs and driving without insurance or a licence following a car chase in Blackpool.
The pursuit began at 9.20am when the driver failed to stop for Blackpool north neighbourhood officers who were on a regular patrol in Mansfield Road.
Officers gave chase, the pursuit ending a short while later when the driver lost control and crashed into a lamp post and garden wall.
He was taken to Blackpool Victoria Hospital where he was treated for minor injuries.
A Lancashire Police spokesman said the chase had only lasted 'a couple of minutes'.
