Escaped prisoner is jailed after driving the wrong way down a motorway

Footage from a police helicopter has captured the thrilling finale to a car chase, in which an absconded prisoner tried to drive the wrong way down a Hampshire motorway – but had his vehicle flipped over by police.

Darryl Dempsey, age 22, walked away from Ford prison in West Sussex, but was tracked down by officers 10 days later as he drove an Isuzu Trooper 4x4 through the Hampshire countryside.
