Bermudian in court after UK police chase

A Bermudian, Toronto Darrell, is to be sentenced in Nottingham Crown Court in Britain after admitting he drove dangerously through a housing estate in the UK city.

Nottingham Magistrates Court heard that Mr Darrell, engaged in “a high-speed police chase through a built-up area over a substantial distance” in the Bestwood Park neighbourhood.

Mark Fielding, the prosecutor, added that Mr Darrell, 54, ignored stop signs and drove at 80mph in a 20mph area.

Mr Darrell, who also admitted having no insurance, reportedly told the court: “I don't know England.”

Mr Darrell was disqualified from driving, and given a sentencing date of June 11.

No date for the incident was reported yesterday by The Nottingham Post, but Mr Fielding told the court it had occurred at 10pm when pedestrians were “likely to be about”.
