A MAN has been reported for offences including dangerous driving following a police chase.

Officers followed a silver Ford Focus, which had not stopped for a police motorbike on the A130 at Rettendon, at about 2.05pm on January 6.

It was followed to Inchbonnie Road in South Woodham Ferrers, where the driver fled the vehicle and was later traced.

An Essex Police spokesman said he has been reported for taking a vehicle without consent, dangerous driving, failing to stop, driving whilst disqualified and having no insurance.

He will be summonsed to appear at magistrates court in the near future.
