This is the dramatic moment police crashed head on into a dementia sufferer's car after he was spotted travelling at 50 mph on the wrong side of the M6.

Police were called to the toll road in the West Midlands at 9.50 pm on Tuesday after reports that a Honda Jazz was heading south on the northbound carriageway.

Two officers were forced to risk a head on collision and deliberately block the path of the car in the outside lane to avoid a serious accident.

Dramatic footage released by West Midlands Police yesterday shows the moment the officers spotted the Honda coming towards them at speed.

One anxious officer can be hear saying "He's coming at speed mate, he's coming at speed. He's going to hit, he's going to hit. He's going to hit. He's going to hit us."
