A Mansfield man who sped away from police and demonstrated “the most dangerous driving” one pursuing officer had ever seen, has been sent to crown court for sentencing.

Police put on their blue lights and sirens to make Jamie Wilson pull over on Eakring Road, at 12.40pm, on March 13.

But when an officer got out to speak to him, he spun his wheels and drove off.

The court heard that Wilson travelled at speeds of up to 80mph on 30mph stretches of road, drove on the wrong side of the road and across a pedestrian crossing while it was being used by a lady with a pushchair.

“The officer said it was the most dangerous driving he had seen in his career,” said prosecutor Karen Hartley.

Wilson, 31, of Alcock Avenue, admitted dangerous driving, failing to stop for police, driving without a licence, and driving without insurance and while disqualified, when he appeared at Mansfield Magistrates Court, on Wednesday.

He was given unconditional bail to appear at Nottingham Crown Court, on April 25, and an interim driving ban was imposed.
