Four teenagers charged after police chase vehicle through Poulton

Police have charged four teenagers after officers were led on a pursuit through Poulton.

Just after midnight on Monday (March 18), they received a report of a Vauxhall Insignia being stolen from a driveway in Poulton.

At around 1am, officers spotted the vehicle, and signalled for it to stop. The vehicle did not stop, instead speeding up, and driving through red lights, as officers pursued it.

The car was brought to a stop in Cleveleys and four teenagers were arrested.

A 13-year-old boy has since been charged with dangerous driving, aggravated vehicle taking, driving without a licence, driving without insurance, and failing to stop.

He was remanded to appear Blackpool Youth Court yesterday (19th March).

Three boys, aged 15, 14 and 13, have been charged with aggravated vehicle taking (being carried on) and dangerous driving.

They will appear before Preston Youth Court on April 11.
