THIS IS the moment a Flintshire man led police on a dangerous high speed chase after "drinking heavily".

Last week, the Leader reported on Peter Lee, who was jailed for 15 months and handed a five year driving ban.

On November 17, the court heard that Lee, of Fifth Avenue in Talacre, pleaded guilty at a previous hearing to three offences; being in charge of a motor vehicle whilst over the alcohol limit, drink-driving and dangerous driving.

On October 16, police were called out by a member of the public at around 2.40am after concerns were raised about a car parked at the side of the road with the engine running and lights on for a long period of time.

When officers arrived, 48-year-old Lee was asleep in the driver's seat with music playing and the engine on. They woke him and noted he was 'slurring his words'.


The court heard that he gave a breath sample reading of 92 microgrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath - the legal limit being 35.

Then, whilst on bail, he committed the other two offences - including one shown in the footage above.

That was from October 24, when at around 11pm, officers noticed a black Seat Ibiza accelerating through Llanddulas and turning into a 20mph road.

The police pursued the vehicle, which was being driven by Lee, and activated their blue lights to signal him to stop.

But he didn't - he led the officers on a high speed chase, reaching speeds of up to 70mph in residential areas.

The Leader: PIC: by North Wales Police shows Peter Lee, 48, of Talacre.

A police stinger was set out at the Black Cat roundabout - and despite deflating his tyres and losing control, Lee carried on through Llandudno Junction until he eventually crashed on Ronald Avenue.

He gave a breath sample of 87 microgrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath that time.

The court saw footage of the chase, which show's Lee turning sharply into the path of one of the police cars at one point and colliding with it.

The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) has now released the shocking dashcam footage of the incident.
