A driver led police on a chase with three children in his car before colliding with five vehicles, officers have said.

Police were attempting to stop a grey Vauxhall Vectra in Teesville at 08:50 BST on Wednesday amid concerns over the manner of its driving, when it made off at speed.

The car containing a male driver, female passenger and the children then collided with five vehicles.

It was later found abandoned.

"No one was injured in the incident."

Police are appealing for information.
