West Wales car chase boy, 15, is sentenced to rehabilitation

A 15-year-old boy who stole a car in Pembrokeshire and drove about 40 miles before crashing into another car after a police chase has been given a two-year youth rehabilitation order.

The teenager, who cannot be named for legal reasons, stole the Fiat Punto in Saundersfoot and drove erratically.

The 50-minute chase ended with a crash in Burry Port, Carmarthenshire, and all went to hospital with minor injuries, Haverfordwest magistrates heard.

The boy admitted all charges.

They included theft, dangerous driving, having no licence and no insurance.
