Police managed to get the vehicle registration and track the young driver down and deal with him for the offences committed.

A post on Bolsover and Clowne Safer Neighbourhood Team's Facebook said: "I think his mother put more fear into him then we did as she attended the Police station with him and was horrified as much as we were by his, what only can be described as stupid actions.

"I don’t think he will be driving like this again and let this be a lesson to all motorists that think they are invincible on the roads.

"This was a lucky escape, we are just pleased we were not visiting his mother or another family with a different story."
