Wiltshire Police

Six men have been arrested on suspicion of hare coursing following a high-speed car chase with Wiltshire police in the early hours of this morning (Thursday, February 3).
At around 2:30a.m today, Wiltshire police spotted two vehicles on Hackpen Hill, both of which fled the scene when the officers attempted to stop them; a pursuit was then authorised.

The fleeing cars reached speeds of 90m/h and used high-powered lamps from the rear of the vehicles in an attempt to blind the officers. At one point, according to the statement on Wiltshire Police's website, the cars went the wrong way around a roundabout, before heading along the A4 towards Calne.
