A 41-year-old man from Formby has been rescued and arrested after a suspected stolen car was driven into Carr Mill Dam last night during a pursuit.
The driver of the Audi sped off as police tried to stop the car. It led to a police pursuit up the M62 through Winwick and Newton-le-Willows into St Helens.
Officers used a stop stick before the car continued onto the East Lancashire Road towards the Waterside pub in St Helens where the driver drove at speed into the Carr Mill Reservoir.
The officers involved in this pursuit and rescue acted with exceptional bravery, tenacity and professionalism to rescue the man on a bitterly cold, wet and miserable evening.
Without a second thought given to their own safety and the conditions, they entered the freezing water and dragged him through the rear of the car just before it became completely submerged.
We are extremely proud to have such outstanding officers serving for Merseyside. Police on the front line are vital in protecting our communities and the pursuit and rescue serves as a reminder of the very real dangers that officers face to keep us all safe day in, day out.
