On 3 February 2021, Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) cameras alerted police to two different cars using the same number plate at the same location in Swansea.

Officers caught sight of the cloned vehicle, a high-performance Vauxhall Astra VXR, and a pursuit began around the Blaenymaes area of Swansea.

Body-worn footage shows the driver of the car, David Morgan from Blaenymaes, attempting to flee after he had deliberately hit two police vehicles.

Morgan’s attempts to get away were unsuccessful and a search of the car found a bag with large quantities of cocaine and cash.

He was sentenced to a total of five years in prison, plus five years disqualification from driving, after pleading guilty to dangerous driving, assaulting emergency workers and for possession of a controlled drug, with intent to supply.
