Two men and teenage girl have been charged after a car made off from police in west Belfast on Friday night.

Police said that they observed a red coloured Renault car travelling at speed along the Springfield Road shortly before 9.30pm and signalled for it to stop.

The vehicle failed to stop and police followed it through the Cluain Mor Estate before it was abandoned on Beechmount Parade.

Two of the individuals were observed exiting the vehicle and were arrested by police nearby, while the third was arrested after being located in the rear of the vehicle.

A 35-year-old man is charged with dangerous driving, driving while disqualified, failing to stop for police and using a motor vehicle without insurance. He is expected to appear before Belfast Magistrates Court on Saturday.

A 33-year-old man is charged with disorderly behaviour and obstructing police. He is expected to appear before Belfast Magistrates Court on September 16. He has also been returned to prison after his licence was revoked.

As is normal procedure all charges will be reviewed by the Public Prosecution Service.
