The assault came after a 150mph chase and an hour of fighting with Moore before he was finally restrained.

Incredible Dashcam released by Greater Manchester Police shows a Mercedes overtaking a lorry at around 100mph on a stretch of roadworks which had a speed limit of 30mph.

Before showing a foot chase where Moore is tasered by officers but still manages to avoid capture.

Officers told the court in Bolton that they had feared for their lives and had never experienced anything like what they encountered in all their years in the force.

One officer sustained a broken bone in his arm in the scuffle and needed two operations to repair the damage.

In all their careers, the officers at the scene had never been so scared nor witnessed such a violent individual that had so much strength to fight.
