Gloucester children caught up in 125mph police car chase

Video of a man driving at speeds of up to 125mph (201kmh) with two young children in the car has been released by Gloucestershire Police.

Kieran Hayward, 19, of Colebridge Avenue in Gloucester, was jailed for six months and also received a two-year driving ban last week after admitting dangerous driving and driving without insurance.

The force said it became aware after the chase of a young baby and a five-year-old girl in the back of the car he was driving.

PC Mark Wiacek, who led the pursuit around Gloucester, said: "I was horrified to see children in the back of the car - the five year-old wasn't even belted up appropriately. She was wearing an adult seatbelt with no booster seat."
