A Burnley and Padiham Police spokesman said: "Burnley and Rossendale patrols had this BMW make off from them in Crawshawbooth. A pursuit was authorised which ended on Crown Point Road. Fortunately, for the officers the road is closed so the BMW driver quickly came to a stop at the road block.

"He gave himself up without further incident. He has been dealt with for various offences and his vehicle seized. Sometimes a little bit of luck is needed."
