Vintage Morris Minor tries to outrun police after being stolen by thief

Incredible dash cam footage shows a stolen vintage car being chased around the streets by a police car.

The 51-year-old Morris Minor can be seen swerving around traffic and narrowly avoiding other vehicles as the driver attempted to escape police.

The driver, who sped through Bradford, West Yorkshire, has not been caught, but the car was later recovered.

The footage was uploaded to Twitter by West Yorkshire Police’s road policing unit with the comment: “It’s not every day you have a pursuit with a 51-year-old stolen Morris Minor.

“Fagley area of Bradford.

“Can anybody explain how it didn’t crash at this junction?”



The Morris Minor was chased round a tight bend

One Twitter user said: “Holy c*w….. that was unreal.

“I cant believe they made it through there.

“I hope the vehicle was returned to the clearly loving owner, unscathed…”

Another added: “Why would someone steal what is obviously the owners pride and joy?”



It came close to being written off during the chase

One user asked police if they had “got the Benny Hill theme tune to go with it?”.

West Yorkshire Police later tweeted: “The pursuit lasted quite a while but thankfully the vehicle was recovered safely without damage.”

No arrests have been made.
