A POLICE chase ended with the occupants of an uninsured car fleeing – leaving behind a balaclava and a “nasty pick axe handle”.

An officer from South Yorkshire Police’s Operational Support unit said the incident had occurred in Kilnhurst after the vehicle failed to stop.

Officers pursued the blue car and when it eventually came to a stop the occupants escaped but left behind the balaclava and “nasty pick axe handle”.

The vehicle was seized and found to have no tax, MOT or insurance, added the officer who tweeted about the incident in the early hours of this morning (Thursday).
