Van driver with no insurance attempts to flee police through a field

A van driver who was not insured tried “in vain” to flee police.

Derbyshire Roads Policing Unit shared details of the incident on its Twitter page, after the driver tried to escape after being caught in Mackworth.

The tweet said: “Van driver goes off-roading to avoid speaking to us about having no insurance.

“Ludicrous behaviour and all in vain as we call out Burrows Recovery with their Unimog. #Seized#RecoveryTruckGoals.”
