A DISQUALIFIED driver who led police on a chase while an accomplice’s five-month-old baby was not fastened into her seat has been jailed.

Martin McDonagh, of New Street, pleaded guilty to four charges - cruelty to a child, dangerous driving, driving while disqualified and having no insurance.

The incident, which took place on August 2 in Rugby, Warwickshire, saw McDonagh and a passenger fail to stop for police before coming to a dead-end street in a Volkswagen Bora.

The 27-year-old pleaded guilty at Warwick Crown Court on Wednesday was jailed for two-and-a-half years.
