A dangerous High Wycombe driver who led police on a 100mph chase across the county has been sent to prison.

Saqib Mohammed Jawaid, aged 23, reached speeds of up to 110mph in a 50mph zone, and up to 80mph in a 30mph zone as he was pursued through Amersham, High Wycombe and Hazlemere on June 1.

Following a nearly 10-minute chase through, Jawaid was forced to bring the Mercedes to a halt after it lost a tyre and started smoking and sparking.

Jawaid, of Deeds Grove in High Wycombe, was sentenced to one year and two months in prison and was given a two-year, seven-month driving ban at Aylesbury Crown Court on Saturday.

The court heard how on June 1, at around 11.40pm, officers saw a black Mercedes A Class speeding in Gore Hill in Amersham.

When officers tried to pull the car over it accelerated away, prompting a high-speed chase. The court heard how Jawaid was serving a driving ban and had no insurance at the time of the chase.

During the pursuit, Jawaid hit speeds of 110mph in a 50mph zone and 80mph in a 30mph limit area. He dangerously ignored traffic signals, running through red lights, contravening 'keep left' signs and travelling the wrong way around roundabouts.

At one stage the Mercedes nearly hit a pedestrian near the Tesco in Amersham Road, High Wycombe. Jawaid sped on the wrong side of a traffic island had had to mount the concrete to avoid hitting a member of the public.

Eventually, after a nine-minute chase during which Jawaid lost a tyre, he was forced to come to a stop in Cryers Hill Road, Hazlemere, when his vehicle started sparking and smoking.

Officers arrested him on the spot and he was charged on June 2. He later pleaded guilty to charges of dangerous driving, driving whilst disqualified and driving without insurance.
