TEN cars were damaged during a police chase in Basildon. 

Officers attempted to stop a red Renault Trafic van just before the Sadlers Farm roundabout on the A13 at about 5.30pm on October 15.

It carried on driving onto the A130, before reaching a queue of traffic on the A1245 at the Fairglen Interchange.

The Renault was seen weaving in and out of the traffic before colliding with cars while approaching the roundabout.

Two men in the van then got out and ran off in the direction of the A127.

PC Chris Hoy, of the Basildon local policing team, said: “This happened at a busy time of day and it is highly likely drivers would have seen these two men running off.

“I am keen to speak to anyone who has dash cam footage or saw where the suspects went.”
