Police have arrested a man after they were led on a pursuit through Cardiff overnight.
Officers were patrolling along Main Road when they spotted a Holden Commodore at about 11pm.
They tried to pull it over after finding the car’s number plates belonged to a Hyundai Excel with cancelled registration.
The driver failed to stop and then took off towards Wallsend.
He came to a stop near Watkins Street and fled on foot, before he was caught.
Officers also found a 13-year-old boy in the back seat of the car.
The 39-year-old has now been hit with multiple charges including dangerous driving and was refused bail.
