After leaving the road at speed before the crash, CCTV captured the driver and passenger leaving the car and making off from the scene on foot.

Police Constable Adam Smith tweeted that the vehicle was later removed for CSI to investigate and said they had already attempted to interview a suspect.

He tweeted: "Damage to street furniture following the #Starbeck RTC. Thank your chosen deity no-one was walking past at the time."
