An 18-year-old was arrested following an early hours police chase through the streets of Royal Wootton Bassett on Saturday. 

Tommy Bonner, of Comet Crescent in Calne, has since been charged with drink driving, careless driving, failing to stop, driving without insurance and driving without a licence. 

Police said a moped was driven at speed down New Road and failed to stop when officers asked. It carried on up Station Road and onto the High Street before going down an alleyway alongside Allsorts Nursery.

“Officers continued on foot and located the bike and driver on The Rosary where he was arrested,” said a statement from the force.

Bonner has been released on bail and is due at Swindon Magistrates’ Court on October 28
