A DRIVER who infamously filmed his own ‘selfie’ police chase has been jailed after he led officers on a second pursuit.

Police spotted Salim Shah at the Rising Bridge roundabout in a red BMW, as he drove friends back from a night out in Manchester.

But after running checks officers soon realised Shah was a disqualified driver and they illuminated their emergency blue lights in a bid to get him to pull over, Burnley Crown Court was told.

Shah failed to heed their warnings, at one point driving his BMW over a stinger device, used to deflate his tyres, the court heard.

CCTV footage, from a police vehicle, was played to the court, showing the car’s progress through Accrington, Altham and Clayton-le-Moors.

Prosecutor Stephen Parker said Shah reached speeds of 60mph in 30mph zones and ignored give way signs, putting other drivers in danger.

An earlier hearing at Blackburn Magistrates Court was told he reached 65mph in Burnley Road and drove through red lights. He eventually stopped in Brisbane Street.

Shah, 25, of Blackburn Road, Great Harwood, pleaded guilty to dangerous driving and driving while disqualified, and having no car insurance.

He was jailed for 12 months and banned from driving for a further two years.

The Lancashire Telegraph has highlighted Shah’s conduct as part of the Stop The Madness roads campaign.

Shah was jailed for 16 months in 2014, at the same court, for a police pursuit which saw him filming the incident in a selfie style.

He even asked police: “It was a good chase wasn’t it?” when eventually caught.

The defendant, at the time of his latest offences, was already serving a driving ban after being jailed for 22 months by North Cheshire magistrates for disqualified driving.

Marianne Alton, defending, said her client knew he was facing a prison sentence and accepted he had ‘a big problem’ when it came to cars.

She told the court he wanted to put his driving record behind him and had signed up to learn a trade while on remand in prison. The defendant, who is teetotal, had offered to drive friends home from a night out in Manchester, as they had been drinking, added Miss Alton.
