Ever wondered what it's like to be a police officer in a high-speed chase? 

A new Police Interceptors video offers a cop's-eye-view of a dramatic chase through Bradford city centre using 360-degree camera technology.

Bradford police officers Chris Spencer and Kev Shaw are featured in the high-tech video of their journey from Great Horton Road to Hockney Road in Girlington.

The officers, who appear on the Channel 5 show, get a call about a driver that has failed to stop for police. They turn the car around on Great Horton Road, put on the sirens and head for the city centre, passing the Alhambra Theatre.

They then join another police car and head along City Road and Thornton Road at speeds of up to 70mph, before trapping the suspect vehicle in an industrial estate and dragging the driver to the floor.

And there are no prizes for guessing what type of vehicle is involved in the chase - a red Volkswagen Golf.

The Police Interceptors camera man can be seen filming in the back of the car throughout the chase, before rushing out with the officers at the end.

The two-and-a-half-minute video is worth a couple of watches to see both the view out of the windscreen as well as the officers as they pursue the car.


The popular post has amazed Facebook users, with comments praising the officers for their work. 

Gem Fox-Shaw said: "Brilliant video showing the fantastic skill, great work chaps!"

John Winsloe said: "That was one of the best videos I've seen on FB yet."

Sean Swinton said: "Some spot on driving there making up ground considering how far they were behind to start with."
