Derbyshire Roads Police said the stolen Volkswagen Golf failed to stop in Hathersage when requested to by officers and then subsequently crashed.

Both occupants somehow managed to 'peel themselves' out of the vehicle before fleeing the scene, police added.

The car has been stolen from Stockport two days before.
