Meena Jutla (Paige Sandhu) has her eyes on dealing with Victoria Barton (Isabel Hodgins) due to her jealousy over her growing relationship with David Metcalfe…
This shocking video shows the moment a drunken joyrider flips his partner’s car onto its roof during a heart-stopping police chase.
Darren Lee, 43, had been drinking at a family party in July this year when he took his former girlfriend’s car out for a joyride.
Police caught up with him a few minutes later on the A1, but the boozed-up driver refused to pull over and a pursuit at speeds of up to 85mph followed.
Lee can be seen swerving erratically across the A1 dual carriageway in the Vauxhall Tigra while flanked by two police cars – ramming one of them as he tries to escape.
However Lee’s rampage comes to an end when his car is nudged by a police vehicle, causing him to lose control and career across the road into a barrier.
The Tigra can then be seen flying through the air in a cloud of smoke and landing on its roof.
Incredibly, Lee walked away without serious injuries after the chase in Newcastle, Tyne and Wear.
He was arrested and admitted dangerous driving, aggravated vehicle taking, having no insurance and driving otherwise than in accordance with a licence.
Lee, of Newcastle, was jailed for 12 months by a judge.
Motor Patrols Inspector Ian Dey, of Northumbria Police, said: "This driving was incredibly reckless and even more dangerous when you consider that this man had been drinking.
"Not only did he put his own life at risk when he got behind the wheel of that car but he also endangered our officers and other road users.
"The footage is quite shocking and he is incredibly lucky that he was able to walk away from the crash without any serious injuries.
"He will now spend the next year behind bars and has also been handed an extended driving ban to keep him off the road."
Lee, who has previous convictions for driving offences, was also banned from driving for four years.
