VIDEO: Unlicensed danger driver Usman Iqbal, who led police on chase through Thornton Road area of Bradford, spared jail

A father-to-be has avoided an immediate prison sentence after he tried to escape from pursuing police by driving up a grassed embankment onto waste ground.
Usman Iqbal, 23, was arrested after the Peugeot 206 he was driving without a licence got stuck as he tried to get away during a lunchtime pursuit.
Iqbal, of Bridgwater Road, Bradford, had increased his speed when officers activated their blue lights and on Thursday Judge Colin Burn was shown this graphic in-car footage of his dangerous driving.


During a pursuit lasting less than three minutes Iqbal came close to hitting an unsuspecting pedestrian before he pulled straight out onto a main road causing another motorist to take evasive action.
The footage also showed Iqbal driving on the wrong side of traffic islands and reaching a top speed of about 60mph before he tried to lose the police by driving up the grassed embankment in the Northside Road area.
Judge Burn heard that Iqbal was arrested as he got out of the vehicle and during his interview he described his driving as "erratic and ugly".
He told officers he had panicked and his barrister Christopher Moran said the defendant was genuinely remorseful.
Iqbal's wife is expecting another child later this year and the court heard that he was due to begin a job at a packing firm on Monday.
