PEOPLE living close to a Birkenhead pub have described seeing a high-speed pursuit outside their own homes.

Neighbours of the Queens Hotel, on Park Road East, say they saw a car travelling at high speeds earlier today.

A man was seen running from the car, with police cars and the police helicopter said to be in pursuit.

One resident told Globe chief reporter Craig Manning: "We saw a car moving at speed behind the pub, a bloke got out and he just legged it."

Police have now left the scene on Park Road East but are yet to confirm what sparked the pursuit.


The search for the driver continues and inquiries are ongoing.
