Dramatic footage has emerged of the moment a suspect burglar flips a stolen car during a vehicle pursuit.
The footage, released by Greater Manchester Police, shows the incident from the perspective of the lead vehicle involved in the pursuit.
The incident happened on Thursday 18th July at around 22:00 hours.
Road Policing Officers spotted the suspected stolen vehicle heading towards Openshaw from the city centre.
After activating their blue lights and sirens, the driver of the Golf failed to stop for officers, and it drove off at speed.
A stinger was deployed by officers to reduce the risk of a high-speed pursuit and to bring the fleeing vehicle to a safe stop.
The tyres of the Golf were successfully deflated on Ashton Old Road, but the reckless driver still attempted to drive off at speed.
While the car was driving across the junction on Lees Street, Openshaw, it collided with a second car.
The driver of the Golf lost control of the vehicle and hit a brick wall, resulting in the car landing on its roof.
Greater Manchester Police confirmed that the driver and passenger of the second car were not injured but were badly shaken from the ordeal.
The driver of the Golf, a 29-year-old man, was arrested on suspicion of burglary and dangerous driving.
Anyone with information is asked to contact police on 101 or the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
