A WANTED man who was stopped by police in Bradford has been jailed for 10 years for robbery.

Glen Nunns was on the run when he was arrested by West Yorkshire Police's Roads Policing Unit after a Crimewatch appeal.

Police tweeted that he was held after driving his Ford Transit van the wrong way up Manchester Road towards oncoming traffic after failing to stop and then crashing the vehicle.

Operation Steerside officers initiated the pursuit and were helped by the Roads Policing Unit and Bradford South officers.

Nunns had been wanted for a long period of time for a serious offence after he and three other men forced entry into a remote property in Nottinghamshire in May 2018 and assaulted and restrained the two elderly people who lived there using cable ties.

Cash was stolen during the incident.

Nunns pleaded guilty to the offences and was sentenced at Nottingham Crown Court on Monday.

The dangerous driving offence relates to him failing to stop for police after fleeing the scene of the robbery.
