Two people – including a police officer – were injured during a pursuit with a suspected drink driver in Chippenham last night.
Officers were called to reports of a driver being intoxicated whilst driving a Volkswagen Golf in the town centre at around 8.30pm. On arrival the vehicle made off, almost colliding with two pedestrians.
A police officer suffered an arm injury and the driver of the Peugeot suffered minor injuries.
The National Police Air Service plane – which was in the area for training – was tasked and circled the town in search of the two occupants of the car.
The suspect wasn’t located in the search but and an investigation is ongoing.
