A high speed car chase down the A127 on Sunday night saw police officers clock 125mph pursuing a stolen car that was eventually found abandoned in Cranham.

An Essex Police spokeswoman confirmed they were called to a residential road in Leigh-on-Sea just after 10.40pm to reports of a blue Ford Fiesta being stolen.

She said: “Officers pursued the vehicle along the A127 and followed the vehicle in to Met ground.

“It was later found abandoned by officers from the Metropolitan Police in Sunnycroft Gardens, Cranham.”

A tweet from officers at Essex Police’s force control room late on Sunday night confirmed the chase down the A127 began at 10.51pm, and that the vehicle was recovered undamaged.

There have been no arrests and inquiries are continuing.

Anyone with information should contact Essex Police officers at Southend police station on 101.
