A teenager from Luton who led police on a 60 mile chase reaching speeds of up to 165mph has been jailed.

Usman Kiani raced past police after jumping a road block on the M1 in the East Midlands.

He then led a chasing pack on a 60 mile chase through Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire and into Leicestershire where he crashed into a wall.

Kiani and three passengers then attempted to escape, but were unsuccessful. Despite the high speed pursuit, remarkably no-one was injured.
