A wanted driver in Bolton ended up accidentally steering right into a car dealership during a dreadful escape attempt from local police earlier this week.
The individual behind the wheel – who had already been disqualified from driving on four separate occasions – tried to make a sneaky getaway when he spotted officers in the area.
Swerving his Corsa down what he believed to be a shortcut, the driver soon realised to his chagrin that he had inadvertently pulled into a car dealership.
The Greater Manchester Police Safer Roads Targeting Team swooped in to apprehend the culprit – who had absolutely nowhere left to go.
Reciting the tale on Twitter, GMP Traffic officers stated: “The driver of this Corsa tried to evade our #GMPSRTT patrol in Bolton earlier but his navigational skills led him into rear of a car dealership.
“Found to be disqualified x 4 & wanted.”
Officers also confirmed that the vehicle was seized – with prohibition issued for tinted windows and an insecure battery.
The driver was arrested and held in remand following the incident.
