PC Jack Purcell said: "The footage demonstrates Maxwell's absolute disregard for other road users, members of the public and the police.  

"Driving at over three times the speed limit, the wrong way around roundabouts and towards oncoming traffic on a dual carriageway is totally unacceptable.

"The sentence handed to Maxwell today is a reflection of just how dangerous the driving was and credit must go to all of the officers involved in the pursuit and the investigation team to bring Louis to justice."
