Police want to trace James Mitchell in connection with an incident in Rockingham on March 10 NNL-160422-101938001

The Northants Telegraph reported on the incident in March which followed a police chase through the town. Witnesses said the car rolled driverless down the steel hill in the rural village outside Corby.

Police have now taken the unusual step of releasing the picture of a man they wish to trace in connection with dangerous driving, driving while disqualified and failing to stop following an incident on Thursday, March 10.

James Mitchell, aged 29, pictured, is also sought by officers in Essex after he failed to appear at court to face charges of driving while disqualified, in October 2014.
