DRIVER CHARGED OVER MID COAST PURSUIT

A man has been charged over a police pursuit on the Mid North Coast.

Just before 2pm today, police received reports of a Peugeot sedan speeding on the Pacific Highway towards Coffs Harbour.

Highway Patrol officers saw the vehicle travelling above the 110 km/h speed limit and tried to stop the vehicle near Sapphire Beach.

The Peugeot failed to stop, and a pursuit started through Korora, before it was stopped due to safety concerns.

A short time later, police patrolling the Coffs Harbour CBD saw the Peugeot in heavy traffic outside the police station.

The driver, a 30-year-old man, was removed from the vehicle and arrested.

He was taken to Coffs Harbour Police Station and charged with a string of offences, including driving while disqualified, and using an unregistered motor vehicle.

The Queensland man was grated conditional bail to face Coffs Harbour Local Court on May 17.
