Judge William Hart imposed an eight-month prison sentence, suspended for 18 months. He told Hyett: "This was a very dangerous piece of driving. "80mph on the A37 Wells Road, into Bristol, in July last year was remarkably dangerous. "Anyone who sees dangerous driving while that took place is horrified and terrified by it.

." Leuan Callaghan, prosecuting via video link, said police saw the Ford Focus and it seemed the driver was trying to evade them. There then followed a pursuit lasting some two minutes and 30 seconds in which Hyett drove on the wrong side of the road, at 80mph in a 30mph limit. He said later he thought the person behind was linked to somebody who owed him money, rather than thinking it was police, the court heard. The prosecution did not accept that as, at his home, Hyett admitted seeing the police car and panicking, and the police vehicle used its lights and sirens as it followed.
