Motorist abandons car and hides in a nearby church toilet
A motorist was pursued through Wimbledon by the police helicopter and patrol cars as he drove the wrong way round the Wimbledon one-way system.
He had refused to stop and was briefly lost as he was followed by police at 7pm on Monday evening (April 3).
But eagle-eyed residents pointed officers in the direction of St Andrew’s Church in Herbert Road.
Police found the vehicle outside, while the driver was found hiding in the toilets of the church, while a live service was going on! He was arrested and led out of the building.
A police spokesman said: “We’d like to thank the congregation for their support and apologise for interrupting their evening!
“The suspect was wanted for several offences including a GBH along with his collection of driving offences.”
