A driver who led police on a 70mph chase through residential streets has been jailed.
Police on Leith Walk spotted Alan Phillips parking his Volkswagen Passat, but paid him little attention.
But when Phillips saw the officers he drove off, raising suspicions, so they followed him.
He got to nearby Charleston Drive when traffic officers put on their lights and siren and indicated for him to pull over.
However, Phillips instead sped off down the busy city street – lined on both sides with houses, shops and parked cars – hitting 70mph before turning into narrow residential streets off the main drag.
Phillips, 20, of Thurso Crescent, admitted dangerous driving, failing to stop and driving without insurance on June 8.
At Dundee Sheriff Court, Sheriff Derek Reekie jailed Phillips for 210 days and banned him from driving for 18 months. He said: “You put the public at risk of serious injury.”
