Karl White led police on a pursuit through Littlehampton, before crashing as he attempted to squeeze between two bollards into a pedestrianised area, said police. He caught the attention of officers on routine patrol in the town, who noticed the number plate did not match the make and model of the grey Citroen C8 he was driving. They activated their lights and indicated for it to stop in Eldon Way, but the vehicle continued and reached speeds of up to 60mph in the 30mph zone, before eventually crashing in Harwood Road. The incident, which occurred about 5.10pm on 9 February, led the Citroen to become trapped and the driver was detained. He was identified as White, 32, a floor layer, of no fixed address. He failed a roadside breath test, which showed he had 83mcg of alcohol per 100ml of breath in his system. The legal limit is 35mcg. He was subsequently arrested and charged with dangerous driving, careless driving, drink-driving, driving with no licence, driving with no insurance, driving without a valid test
