Jack Speed, who drove the wrong way around roundabouts and at 80mph in a 30mph zone, failed to stop for officers when they tried to pull him over in Birmingham earlier this year.

The 21-year-old banned driver raced through a red light at 70mph, moments before losing control and crashing into a wall and a parked car on Digby Road.
