A North Yorkshire Police dog has used his nose to track down a driver who had fled from his crashed car.
Just before midnight yesterday, officers from the Selby response team were on routine patrol when they discovered a vehicle which had crashed on the Greencore roundabout in Selby.
The vehicle was abandoned, and the driver had fled from the scene.

Police dog Rhun and his handler Josh were nearby and went to search for the suspect.
Rhun used his tracking sense to search for the driver. The duo spent over 20 minutes navigating through dense overgrowth and several ditches before reliable Rhun sniffed out the suspect who was hiding in a field.
A 21-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of drink driving, driving with no license or insurance and taking a vehicle without consent.
He was charged with drink driving and driving with no license or insurance.
PC Josh Hunsley from North Yorkshire Police said: “As they say, always trust the nose! Rhun once again did the force proud and tracked to the suspect who was hidden in the undergrowth.
“Afterwards, Rhun reaped his rewards of dog biscuits and plenty of fuss from the team!”
