David Brown, 52, was found guilty of dangerous driving and driving while disqualified at Carlisle Crown Court.

He was also convicted of unlawfully possessing a kitchen knife found in his car.

Carlisle Crown Court heard that police chased Brown on the A66 after he was spotted doing a sudden U-turn in Cockermouth.

Brown, from Wickford in Essex, later crashed his BMW after his tyres were punctured by a police “stinger” device.

At one point during the chase he overtook a car on a blind bend at 80mph.

A police vehicle had to do 110mph to keep up with him.

Will you be turning out the lights in honour of those who fell in WW1?

Yes, it will be a fitting and moving collective tribute. I want to be part of it

No. I can't see it will make any difference to anything

I prefer to remember all those who died in all wars in my own way
