Police are appealing for witnesses after a silver grey Vauxhall Vectra saloon collided with a wall and some roadworks on Wednesday evening.

Officers say the vehicle – which apparently refused to stop for a patrol car on Keighley Road, Skipton – went on to collide with a wall before heading along the A629 towards Cononley Lane Ends where it was involved in a second collision at some roadworks.

Police are keen to trace anyone who may have seen the car leaving Skipton at about 7.58pm. They would also like to hear from anyone who saw it while it was driving along or who witnessed the collisions.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Traffic Sergeant Pete Stringer on 101, Two men, aged 23 and 37 from Nelson, have been arrested and have been released on police bail while further inquiries take place.
