David Saxby was pursued by PC David Smith after the officer noticed Saxby's bike had an illegal number plate. PC Smith claimed he rode at speeds of up to 139mph to keep up with offender. At one point in the video Saxby can be seen overtaking on the brow of a hill while on the wrong side of the road. Judge Roger Thorn QC said Saxby's riding was "a shocking and dangerous piece of driving." Saxby was jailed for 12 months, disqualified from driving for four years and ordered to take an extended driving test.
