A PAIR of drivers who chased a man running from the scene of a crash on the M1 at Trowell services have received certificates commending them for their ‘outstanding action.’

After two cars collided in April, the driver of one vehicle fled into nearby fields. Martin Ward and Adam Dackiw, who had witnessed the crash, chased the man without any thought for their own safety.

They followed him through fields, fences and hedgerows until the suspect fell to the ground, exhausted. He was later arrested and charged with excess alcohol and related road traffic offences.
