Footage has been released of a drug dealer who drove the wrong way on St Peter’s Way in a terrifying police chase.

Mohammed Sultan Khan, of Foxham Drive, Cheetham Hill, was arrested after a chase through the streets of Bolton where he reached speeds of 70mph in 2022.

The dangerous driver was then again caught by the same police officer in 2023, following another chase, this time driving the wrong way on St Peters Way dual carriageway in an effort to evade police.

Khan was sentenced to 45 months in prison at Bolton Crown Court on Friday, February 23.

While GMP still has not released footage of Khan’s 2022 chase, the force has provided The Bolton News with video of the terrifying 2023 chase, which saw Khan reach speeds of up to 65 mph in a 30 mph zone as he sped away from officers who wanted to speak to him regarding his lack of insurance.

Khan then drove the wrong way up a slip road and on to St Peter’s Way, which officers said demonstrated ‘a willingness to put members of the public at severe risk’.

He was caught with £470 worth of cannabis, some of which was hidden in two Pringles tubs, a wooden bat, disposable gloves, small snap bags, and two sets of electronic scales.

In the court case, Khan’s defence barrister Stuart Neale said he was a ‘devoted family member’ who had ‘not grown up properly into adulthood’ and was unable to deal with pressure from others.

Judge Nicholas Clarke KC said Khan was “clearly heavily involved and engaged in the business of selling drugs.”

He added: “In my judgment, there have been plenty of opportunities for you to stop your offending which you have not decided to take.

“It’s clear you didn’t just panic as this was a deliberate and persistent course of driving on both occasions.

“You’d had a clear warning in relation to your drug dealing from the arrest on the first occasion.”

Khan was sentenced to 45 months in prison.

He will also be banned from driving for two years after he leaves prison and will have to take an extended re-test to regain his licence.
