A driver is still on the run after failing to stop in South Yorkshire.

The driver of a green Ford focus is being sought after failing to stop for police in Thurnscoe, Barnsley, on Tuesday evening.

Police attempted to pull the car over as part of a routine stop, because the driver had a brake light out.

But the driver failed to stop, and a police chase led to the vehicle being apparently abandoned.

The driver fled his vehicle and fled on foot.

South Yorkshire Police are currently searching for the driver of the vehicle after the incident at about 8pm on Tuesday.

South Yorkshire Police’s SY Ops Support tweeted: “Fail to stop. Excellent commentary by motorcycle cop. Enquiries ongoing to trace driver. Run but can’t hide.”

Today, a police spokesman added: “The man is still outstanding, but enquiries are ongoing to trace him.”

Anyone with information is asked to call police on 101.
