Police are looking for the driver of a blue MG ZR Rover who ran away from them after crashing in Anchor Road, Calne.

The driver hit a metal railing on the narrow road, just before 6pm on Sunday, April 27, causing his car to tip to one side leaving two wheels on the metal railing and two wheels on the ground.
