Officers tried to stop the car and put a rolling road block in place to protect other road users.

The car, travelling at speeds of up to 90mph, then went onto the M6 Toll.

After the motorway had been closed between junctions T8 and T6, the car collided with the marked police BMW.

Both cars crashed into the central reservation and ended up in the embankment.
