A car almost flipped over during a dramatic high speed police chase through the back streets of Gants Hill yesterday.
An witness told the Recorder that he saw a BMW being pursued by police officers down Cranbook Road at around 4.30pm.
The driver was forced to screech to a halt when a civilian car pulled out in Parham Drive, in front of the BMW.
“A white BMW was driving in an erratic manner and even tried to mount the curb,” said the onlooker, who wished to remain anonymous.
“At one point I thought the car would flip over – the police were tailing it all the way.

“Another car pulled out in front of the BMW and impeded it,” he added.
It has not been confirmed whether this blocking manoeuvre was intentional or accidental due to the high speeds at which the BMW was travelling at.
