A DRIVER who fled on foot after a police car chase was tracked down by police dogs and detained.

Greater Manchester's Traffic Unit officers said they caught sight of a driver behind the wheel of a Vectra when it mounted a pavement in Tennyson Road, Farnworth yesterday.

The driver failed to stop for police, who pursued the car into Highfield.

The car crashed into a parked car after driving down footpaths and "over bollards" before the driver made off and was tracked by police dogs.

The driver was detained by police.
