Police have published dashboard camera footage of a high-speed chase which led to a Warwick man receiving a suspended prison sentence and a driving ban.

At Warwick Crown Court on Friday, Dean Michael Peplow, 29, of Kempton Drive, was disqualified from driving for 12-months, a six-month suspended prison sentence and ordered to complete 40 hours of unpaid work.

Peplow must also undertake 20 days of rehabilitation activity and repay £150 in costs.

Officers from the Warwick Operations Patrol Unit were on patrol in the Warwick area on Tuesday January 5.

Upon seeing their patrol vehicle a white Jaguar X-Type V6 drove off at speed.

Officers pursued Peplow’s vehicle as it drove through red lights, failed to give way at junctions and drove on pavements - all at high speed throughout built up areas of Warwick.

The pursuit came to an end after approximately six minutes after Peplow smashed one of his car’s alloy wheels on a kerb making the vehicle was no longer drivable.

The attached video was captured from the police vehicle pursing Peplow’s vehicle.
