A speeding danger driver who led police on a chase around residential streets has been jailed.
Keith Wilson panicked when police tried to stop him because he knew he had no licence or insurance.
For 20 minutes he sped around the streets of Bedlington, Northumberland, trying to outrun officers at up to twice the 30mph limit.
Police deployed the force helicopter to keep track of him until he finally gave up, dropped the keys out of the window and stopped.
Now the 23-year-old, of Hollymount Avenue, Bedlington, has been jailed for six months after admitting dangerous driving, failing to stop and having no insurance or licence.
Newcastle Crown Court heard it was just after 7.30pm on Saturday, December 12 that Wilson was spotted by police driving fast in a silver Audi A4.

Plessey Woods is a country park situated on the north bank of the River Blyth, in Bedlington, Northumberland. The park is accessed from the A192 in the village of Hartford Bridge, north of Cramlington and south west of Bedlington.
In 2016 Leading Link opened a youth ran Art Trail around Plessey Woods.
Around the trail there are wooden owls and painted snakes, including hobbit doors in the trees near the river bank.
The park extends over 100 acres (0.40 km2) of woodland, meadows and riverside, with a 1½ mile route circumnavigating these habitats and many smaller routes from this loop.
Free parking is available on site, as is a visitor centre with toilets and shop.
