A DRIVER attempted to get away when he saw a police patrol.

Unfortunately for the man, he was found by an officer in Accrington and his car was taken.

Hyndburn Police tweeted: "This vehicle made off from a @LancsTacOps patrol in the Accrington area.

"The driver ran off however the tenacity of the officer with a wealth of local knowledge meant she located him, reported him for summons and seized his vehicle for no insurance and he had no licence."
