Repeated road menace David Morrison has been jailed after ramming police cars in a desperate bid to evade justice.

The 32-year-old already had four previous convictions for driving while disqualified and five for drink driving and was banned from the roads.

But after stealing petrol from a garage in South Gosforth, Newcastle, he sparked a police chase in the Longbenton area after refusing to pull over in a Saab 93.

Newcastle Crown Court heard he had been banned at the end of July and a previous disqualification period had just ended.

But on September 30, he spent almost £70 on petrol at the Shell garage before making off without payment.

A member of the public followed him and flagged down police to alert them.
