A car travelled at speeds of up to 140mph during a police pursuit on the M25 south of London.

Police cars and a force helicopter chased the BMW coupe as it sped from the Thames Valley area into Surrey, officers said.

A 36-year-old man from London has been arrested on suspicion of failing to stop for police and dangerous driving.

A Surrey Police spokesperson said: "A silver BMW coupe had been pursued by officers in both Thames Valley and the Metropolitan Police areas in connection with criminal offences, when it entered Surrey on the M25 around 2:40am.”

"Officers from the Roads Policing Unit, supported by the Surrey Police helicopter, pursued the car on to the M25 anti-clockwise carriageway, where it travelled at speeds believed to be around 140mph.

"Due to the danger posed by the suspect vehicle, a decision was taken to safely stop the pursuit as soon as possible."
