South Yorkshire Police said officers had wanted to speak to the driver of the car about the speed it was being driven but the motorist refused to pull over.

A BMW police car was rammed during the incident and an officer suffered some minor injuries.

A 29-year-old man was later arrested on suspicion of a string of motoring offences, including dangerous driving and driving over the prescribed limit.
