The locally registered vehicle reversed at speed and crashed into a wall after it spotted the Customs patrol car.

“The driver then continued reversing in an erratic manner, before finally crashing against a lamp post, abandoning the vehicle and making good his escape,” HM Customs said in a statement.

“Both the vehicle and cigarettes have been seized and investigations continue.”
