Jail for 180mph M6 chase driver
A man caught doing 180mph in a police chase on the M6 in the West Midlands has been jailed for nine years.
Ben Westwood, of Woden Road, Wednesfield, is thought to be the fastest driver to be caught in the UK.
Wolverhampton Crown Court heard how during the 65-mile chase in January Westwood, 33, almost outpaced the police helicopter, in a stolen car.

I remember young Ben as a 14 yr old when he first started out.
Just goes to show once a scrote always a scrote.
Probably spent more time in prison since he was 14 than he has on the outside.
Nice to see the old team got their man in the end.the sole advantage of power is that you can do more good.

delusional, illogical liberal minority, and rabidly
promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which
holds forth the proposition that it is entirely
possible to pick up a turd by the clean end!'
