A man was arrested in the early hours of this morning after police received a 999 call reporting a car being driven the wrong way down the road.
The witness told the control room operator that the grey Renault Clio was travelling towards him through Regent Circus – a one-way road – at around 11pm last night. The car was reportedly driven across the pavement a short time later.
Following the vehicle whilst on the phone to the police, the witness claims that the driver then travelled through a bus gate and drove the wrong way down Corporation Street.
Shortly after midnight this morning, officers caught up with the suspect at the Whalebridge multi-storey car park in Swindon town centre.
“He was arrested on suspicion of dangerous driving in connection with an incident where a vehicle was driven the wrong way down a one-way road close to Regent Circus and also mounted the pavement”, a spokesperson for Wiltshire Police said.
Adding: “He has been taken to Gablecross Police Station where he remains in custody.”
