Monday 25 April 2011
A teenager has been arrested and charged in connection with the theft of a double-decker bus in the Lake District
Jamie Christopher Hoare, 18, of High Lea Walk, Barrow, was charged yesterday with aggravated taking without the consent of the owner, criminal damage, driving without insurance, driving whilst disqualified and driving while his alcohol level was over the legal limit.
The bus was taken from Barrow, Cumbria at 3.45am yesterday and was spotted by a police patrol when it was driving without lights on the A590 towards Ulverston.
A 50mph chase along the dual carriage ensued when the driver ignored police signals to pull over, before it crashed into the Brettargh Holt roundabout near Kendal.
Hoare suffered "serious but non life-threatening" injuries and was taken to the Royal Lancaster Infirmary.
He is due to appear in Kendal Magistrates' Court today.
