A CAR crashed into Penrith's HSBC bank today after the driver led police on a high speed chase from Scotland.

Police attempted to stop the red Audi on the M74 in Scotland, but the driver refused to pull over and a chase ensued, moving on to the M6.

The chase came to an end after the vehicle left the motorway and entered Penrith town centre, crashed into the bank at about 10-15am. A man has been detained by police.
