Curtis Stewart, 26, was captured in dramatic dash-cam footage dangerously weaving around other vehicles as he fled from officers on the M6.

Traffic cops attempted to box the sozzled motorist in, but he drove up a grass verge before reversing onto an unlit area of the carriageway and speeding away.

He then left the motorway 15 miles later at Junction 3 for Coventry where he hurtled through two sets of red lights at 70mph in a 30mph zone.

Stewart, of Holbrooks, Coventry, was eventually arrested when he stalled the van and was found to be one-and-a-half times over the drink-drive limit.

On Wednesday (11/10) he admitted two charges of dangerous driving and was jailed for 23 months at Warwick Crown Court.

PC Mitch Darby, from the Central Motorway Police Group (CMPG), was one of the officers involved in the pursuit.

He said after the case: "His driving was shocking.

"He was first spotted by a police dog unit in Birmingham doing over 70mph and going through red lights, and that was without a police car behind him.

"He drove up an embankment before temporarily reversing down the M6 and just missed a stinger when he exited the motorway.

"He then drove the wrong way over a blind humpback bridge.

"It was his appalling driving which ultimately stopped him when he was boxed in after slowing for a corner. It was lucky he didn't have an accident."
