Police have arrested a runaway driver who fled along the A78 and into West Kilbride earlier this month. 

A 20-year-old man has been arrested following the incident on Sunday May 1 when a driver fled from Hunterston roundabout to Gateside Street in West Kilbride where there was a two-vehicle crash and the driver made off. 

Officers at the scene were unable to catch the driver at the time but a man has now been detained for five different traffic offences including dangerous driving, and driving without a licence or insurance.
