A BANNED driver has been arrested after he failed to stop on the M5, crashing into other cars.

Officers tried to stop the Peugeot 206 at junction 4 of the M5 just before 6pm yesterday.

It made off and crashed into two cars. The driver ran off towards Wildmore Lane.

All three vehicles were badly damaged but no-one was injured.
