A man is wanted after speeding away from cops amid a frantic car chase.

A distinctive dark green hatchback car was flagged to stop by police on Kinfauns Drive around 1.20pm on Thursday (October 26).

The male driver sped off from the marked police car.

Officers launched a pursuit but the man was lost from sight as he raced towards Drumchapel Road.

The force is now pleading for witnesses to come forward.

Constable Thomas McNeill from Drumchapel Police Station said: “The actions of the driver were extremely reckless and it is important that we identify and trace him.

“The incident occurred at lunchtime near a high school and a shopping precinct and was very busy at the time.

 “I am appealing for anyone who is able to identify the vehicle involved, particularly its registration number, to please get in touch.

“I would also urge any motorists with dash-cams, who were in the area at the time, to check in case they have footage of the vehicle.

“Anyone with information can contact Police Scotland on 101, quoting incident number 1666 of Thursday, 26 October, 2023.”
