Detectives from the Roads and Transport Policing Command (RTPC) are appealing for help to trace a man in connection with driving offences where a vehicle reached 100mph in a 30mph zone.
Officers need to speak to Skye Anderson-King, 30 (22.06.90) in relation to the incident in Newham.
On Thursday, 18 June the driver of a Black Audi S1 failed to stop for police.
An authorised pursuit was initiated on the A13 Newham Way, Canning Town, and officers pursued the driver, who went through red traffic lights against the flow of the traffic.
The driver reached speeds of 100mph in a 30mph speed limit, posing a substantial risk to other road users and pedestrians in the area.
Due to the dangerous manner of driving and risk exposed to members of the public, the decision was made to end the pursuit in Dock Road E6.
The vehicle was later found abandoned in Renfrew Close, E6.
Anderson-King is known to have links to the Brent and Newham areas.
Detective Superintendent Andy Cox, of the Roads and Transport Policing Command, said: “We urgently wish to speak with Skye Anderson-King in relation to an incident in which a driver of a Black Audi S1 failed to stop for police.
“The vehicle reached speeds of 100mph in a 30mph zone at a time when pedestrians and cyclists were present.
“Such driving puts the public at considerable risk and incidents like this are taken very seriously.”
