ONE driver was arrested after attempting to avoid police and another was reported for motoring offences during a busy shift for police in Dudley.

Officers from Dudley Town Police working with traffic cops stopped a silver Audi after it attempted to avoid police yesterday (Saturday May 7) and checks revealed the driver was wanted for failing to appear in court.

He was subsequently arrested.

During the same shift officers stopped and seized a car under the Road Traffic Act and the driver was reported for motoring offences.

Officers also pursued a stolen car which was later found abandoned - then took to Twitter to warn the driver he'd left his phone behind which revealed his identity!
