Man pulls gun in police car chase
A man brandished a gun at police officers after his vehicle was followed by a patrol car in Stoke-on-Trent.

The man was a passenger in a car which was pursued by police after they spotted it in the Goldenhill area on Thursday afternoon.

The car stopped on Congleton Road and a masked man got out and pointed what was thought to be a handgun at officers.

The car was later found abandoned on Old Butt Lane. The men are thought to have fled towards the Lawton-Gate area.
