Police found stolen shotgun after high-speed car chase through Bradford streets

POLICE searching a dangerous driver’s house after a hair raising high speed chase across Bradford discovered a stolen shotgun at the top of his cellar, a crown court has heard.
Jordan Bottomley, 22, of Mount Street, Eccleshill, had been looking after the Jabali 12 bore shotgun for someone else after it and other legally-held guns and valuables were stolen from a house in the city’s Haworth Road area a week before the chase, Judge Jonathan Durham Hall QC was told.
Bottomley, who was out of prison on licence for house burglary at the time he was arrested on April 22 this year, was sentenced to a total 30 months in prison at Bradford Crown Courtyesterday for pleading guilty to dangerous driving, handling a shotgun and possessing a shotgun without a certificate.
He was also banned from getting a licence to drive for the next three years and will have to take a re-test after that.
Sophie Drake, prosecuting, described how an on-duty officer had spotted Bottomley driving a soft-top convertible black BMW which belonged to someone else when he pulled out without stopping on to Wrose Road in Shipley and sped off as the officer approached.
Miss Drake said cars had to swerve and brake to avoid him and pedestrians had to take evasive action as he drove at speeds of up to 70mph without stopping. The blue light chase passed through Livingstone Road and Gainsby Road in Shipley, on to Canal Road,Frizinghall Road, Keighley Road, Emm Lane, Heaton Park Drive, Toller Lane and Duchy Drive.
