Julian Allen tried to escape police by driving on the wrong side of a dual carriageway, swerving between other vehicles and pulling hand-brake-turns in the stolen Mini Cooper, on March 24.

Traffic cops had to call off the road chase because of the danger to other drivers but Allen, 25, was snared after being tracked by the West Midlands Police force helicopter.

The dad-of-one and step-dad-of-two, from Erdington, Birmingham, was jailed for two and a half years at Birmingham Crown Court.

He pleaded guilty to dangerous driving, handling stolen goods, and driving while disqualified at an earlier hearing.
