A motorist and a policeman travelling in a marked patrol car were killed early yesterday when their vehicles collided during a police chase. The West Midlands police car was following a stolen Ford Escort in Oldbury, near Dudley, shortly after midnight, when it collided with another car, a white Vauxhall Nova, at a road junction.

Neil Homer, from Oldbury, who was driving the Vauxhall, and Constable Robert Dallow, 41, who was in the passenger seat of the police car, were both killed. Lezlie Collins, 42, the driver of the police car, was treated in hospital for minor injuries and later discharged.
