Officers pursued the vehicle through several back streets before it came wedged between a fence and a pole.

The 17-year-old male driver was arrested at the scene and taken to Liverpool Police Station for processing.

A search of the stolen BMW also allegedly uncovered a stash of suspected stolen property.

The boy has since been charged with a long list of offences, including police pursuit (Skye’s Law), dangerous driving and two counts of having stolen goods in custody.

He has been refused bail and will appear before a Children’s Court tomorrow.
