    BBC Local Live

    An investigation into a police chase that led to a car crashing into railings was found to be justified and in accordance with force policies.

    It happened on Bushloe End in Wigston in January last year. The two men in the BMW being chased by police were seriously injured when the car crashed.

    The Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) has since looked into the circumstances behind the crash and the involvement of Leicestershire Police.

    They found the police constable driving was suitably trained and the pursuit had been authorised. There was also footage from the body-worn camera where the officer could be heard updating the control room and assessing the level of risk.   

    Since the crash the driver of the BMW has been jailed for 33 months for dangerous driving, driving without insurance and failing to stop.
