Dash-cam footage shows police chase dangerous driver

This shocking dash-cam footage shows the moments a dangerous Nottingham driver raced head-on towards traffic while trying to evade police.

Nathan Cossey went on the run after stealing lead from a garden and tried desperately to escape the force – mounting the kerb and driving at speed on the wrong side of the road.

But the 33-year-old was safely put in cuffs after abandoning his car and trying to run for it.

The chase started after Cossey, of Hendon Rise in Thorneywood, stole lead from the garden of a house in Porchester Road, Carlton.

Cossey was spotted in the garden on July 1 by a woman, loading a pile of lead from the garden into a car. The woman called the police and took photos of Cossey taking the lead as well as photos of the car.

The dramatic footage, released by Nottinghamshire Police, shows a chase after officers spotted the car less than an hour later in Sneinton.

They blocked Baden Powell Road in an attempt to stop the car, but the driver raced away. Cossey was chased and can be seen driving dangerously at high speed, mounting the kerb and driving on the wrong side of the road towards oncoming  He was arrested by officers after abandoning the car in Poplar Street in Nottingham city centre.

Cossey appeared at Nottingham Crown Court on Thursday September 3 after pleading guilty to theft, failing to stop, dangerous driving, driving without insurance and driving without a licence at an earlier hearing.

He was given a 12 month prison sentence, suspended for two years, will have to attend a behavioural programme and has been disqualified from driving for 12 months.

Police Constable Emily Hart said: “Cossey showed a complete disregard for the safety of others by driving at speed in a built up area.

“He was pursued by highly trained officers who constantly assess the risk to the public and only continue if it is safe to do so. As a result of their actions, a dangerous driver has now been prosecuted.

“I’d also like to commend the quick thinking of the woman who captured vital evidence which ultimately led to Cossey’s arrest.

“I’m glad we were able to put this case before the courts and show that theft and dangerous driving are both completely unacceptable.”
