The case was heard at Mold Crown Court on Friday November 8 and all four men received custodial sentences.

Thomas Berry, 27, was sentenced to 20 months in prison, Michael Doran, 26, received 20 months, Patrick Paul Doran, 33, received three years and Adam William Purcell was sentenced to 42 months.

PC Birrell, was taken to hospital at the time but was not seriously injured. The officer has since received a Superintendent's Commendation for the incident.

Detective Constable Lisa Evans of Wrexham CID said: “The sentence will I’m sure bring a degree of relief to many in the local community and I hope it will provide the public with some reassurance and make our communities safer.

“All four men had a complete disregard for their victims and thought they could evade police detection. It is thanks to great partnership work by our officers that these prolific criminals are now behind bars.

"North Wales Police will relentlessly pursue those individuals who cause most harm and this type of behaviour will not be tolerated.”

Temporary Chief Inspector Dave Cust of the Roads Policing Unit added: “Other officers, including the Roads Policing Unit and local policing colleagues were making their way towards the incident, and PC Birrell, despite not knowing the danger she faced, continued to pursue the car whilst single-crewed.

“This was a frightening incident for her and she displayed courage, tenacity and commitment to duty in order to apprehend the males involved.

“This was an appalling act of dangerous driving and it was only by good fortune no one was injured.”
