Driver escapes return to jail.

A DRIVER who sparked a chase when he overtook a police car has escaped a return to jail.

Andrew Groom, 26, pleaded guilty to dangerous driving at Liverpool crown court.

Groom, who drove his Renault Megane at high speed through narrow streets in New Ferry last March, was on licence for wounding and could have been sent back to jail to complete the five-year term.

Father-of-two Groom, who runs a pawnshop in New Ferry, was given a 120-hour community punishment order and a two-year drivingban.
