Jones fled towards the M6 where police patrol cars pursued him and captured him weaving in and out of traffic at 130mph.

He even careered along the hard shoulder in a desperate bid to evade police. He was eventually caught when he crashed the stolen car.

He pulled the wreckage into the hard shoulder, behind a waiting police vehicle, beforejumping out of the car shouting “arrest me, arrest me”.

Jones, of Cecil Road in Stockland Green, Birmingham, was jailed for three years for the robbery and dangerous driving offences when he appeared at Birmingham Crown Court on June 26.

He was also disqualified from driving for four years and three months.

Speaking afterwards, Detective Constable Dan Hart, from British Transport Police, said: “This was a shocking case that was quickly resolved with the help of highly trained drivers from our neighbouring police forces.

“Jones risked the lives of everyone driving on the road that night and this has been recognised in the severity of his sentence.

"Fortunately it was resolved without injury to anyone.”
