The footage shows two cars overtake a vehicle before flying down the Promenade area of the seaside town.

Hull Crown Court heard last week how an officer caught up with Khan, who had a female passenger, in a nearby car park and gestured him to stop but Khan drove at the officer at speed and had to move out of the way to avoid being run over. Another officer tried to block Khan, 23, in but he reversed into the police car, causing slight damage, and sped off. When he stopped once more, an officer tried to take away his keys but he drove off once more and dragged the officer along for a short distance.

He told Khan: “Such is your arrogance that you claimed to police that you were a good driver but you have a complete lack of awareness and took no responsibility for your awful driving. “This was a prolonge
