Shocking video shows speeding driver high on cocaine with his baby daughter in back seat

Police have released shocking dashcam footage of a drug-driving father, who was high on cocaine, speeding through Torquay, running red lights and eventually crashing his car - with his baby daughter on his girlfriend's lap in the back seat.

It has been released as George Alford is serving a 10-month jail sentence. The undercover police did not know at the time that they started to follow the uninsured car that there was a baby in the back. They said after Alford pleaded guilty to dangerous drive, drug drive and no licence/insurance: "He failed to stop for us and unbeknown to us at the time, had his baby travelling in the rear in its mother’s arms disgrace."

Exeter Crown Court heard that when police dragged him from the driver's seat he told them 'I'm out of it on cocaine'. He was twice the safe limit for cocaine and three and a half times the limit for cannabis.

The video was filmed after police in an unmarked car carried out a vehicle check and started following the Corsa from near the Pavilion on Torquay harbourside at 2.30 pm on Thursday September 26.
Alford can be seen narrowly missing other cars and a cyclist as he weaves into the opposite carriageway of winding roads around Meadfoot and the lower Lincombes area. 

The police chase heads along the harbour, through a red light on Torwood Street and broke the speed limit. Then the car heads up Meadfoot Sea Road and speeds along narrow Higher Woodfield Road before heading down Lisburne Crescent and crashing into an oncoming car.
