A Driver abandoned his car on a main road and fled after police tried to stop the vehicle.

Last night officers were on patrol in Guiseley when they saw the pictured car being driven along Otley Road.

The officer recognised the driver as not having the correct documents to drive the car.

They attempted to stop the car to speak to the driver, but he ran from the vehicle, leaving it in the middle of the road.

The car was seized and the driver will be reported for driving offences.
