Appeal after video posted on social media

MERSEYSIDE Police have confirmed that they have launched an investigation after after a video was posted to social media in recent days, showing dangerous driving. The video shows a green BMW 328 estate repeatedly sliding around a roundabout, on Benthams Way, Southport and at 1 point the vehicle comes close to colliding with an NWAS Ambulance, that was driving onto the roundabout. Enquiries are ongoing to identify who was driving the car at the time of this offence, believed to have happened in recent days.

Inspector Keith Kellett from Merseyside Roads Policing said:- "We are well aware of this incident and are making extensive enquiries to identify the person responsible. I would like to reassure members of the community that we will not tolerate such dangerous driving on the roads of Merseyside. Manoeuvres like drifting are incredibly reckless and it is through luck alone that there was not a serious accident, potentially involving the Ambulance. If drivers behave in such a way it is inevitable that someone will be hurt and we will be relentless in identifying those responsible and removing them from the roads."

Anyone with information on this incident is asked to contact:- 101 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on:- 0800 555 111.
