A police chase which started in Buntingford ended on an A1(M) slip road near Stevenage on Monday – with a Vauxhall Corsa smashing into a stationary car waiting at a red light.

Officers on patrol tried to pull over the Corsa in Buntingford's Station Road just after 4.50pm on Monday.

The car failed to stop and was subsequently pursued southbound down the A1(M) from Junction 9 for Letchworth Gate.

The Corsa went down the southbound slip road for Junction 8 (Stevenage Coreys Mill) and crashed into the back of a stationary car, which in turn bumped the car in front as a result of the impact.

A police spokeswoman has confirmed that nobody was seriously injured in the crash.

A 19-year-old woman from Buntingford was subsequently arrested on suspicion of dangerous driving. She has been released under investigation while enquiries continue.
