A high-speed police chase in the West Midlands ended when the car being pursued crashed into a wall at a service station.

West Midlands Police chased a BMW after it failed to stop for officers in the Washwood Heath area at around 4.15am on Thursday September 22.

The pursuit ended with the car leaving the road and hitting the wall at the Bacons End Petrol Station, at the junction of Chester Road and Birmingham Road, in Chelmsley Wood, five minutes later.

The car was badly damaged and three men were detained at the scene.

A West Midlands Police spokeswoman said three men, aged 32, 34 and 35, were arrested on suspicion of dangerous driving and bailed while enquiries continued.

The force helicopter was also scrambled and aided the officers during the pursuit.
