This dramatic police dash cam footage shows drugs boss Paul Day desperately dumping his valuable cargo of a drug cutting agent and heroin potentially worth £300,000.
Tearing through the streets in his Peugeot van, he began by chucking out carrier bags and a cardboard box - all caught on police film as officers pursued his van.
His motor was then engulfed with powder from a cutting agent he threw out during the high-speed chase through the streets of South Normanton and Sutton-in-Ashfield.
Now Paul is starting a prison sentence of 11 years and four months for his role in a conspiracy to supply heroin between April 15, 2016, and December 9, 2016.
His fellow gang members, including his brother, Mark Day, were jailed for nearly 100 years between them as they were sentenced on Friday, July 19.
The chase footage was played at the trial of the head of the Sheffield side of the drugs operation. He is Liban Ahmed-Abdullah who is now on the run after failing to turn up at the sentencing hearing. He was found guilty with street dealer Bernard McCann, 50, of Beechwood Close, Sutton-in-Ashfield, of conspiracy to supply heroin after a trial in February.
The court had heard the police chase of Paul's van followed a discreet drug deal in a car park of the Berristow Lane McDonald's, South Normanton.
Adrian Langdale, who headed the prosecution's case assisted by barrister Emily Mitchell, told the sentencing hearing Paul was then seen in his van calling his brother.
"In that call the two brothers were able to put together a plan of sorts," said Mr Langdale at Nottingham Crown Court.
The "extremely valuable" heroin, thought to weigh two kilos, was wrapped in tape and cling film - and more difficult to open whilst driving down streets and around roundabouts.
Latest news from Nottingham's courts
Paul, 51, of Lindley Avenue, Sutton-in-Ashfield, went twice around a roundabout where his brother pulled out at a junction close to his home in his blue Audi, so he could get in front of the chase.
Mark, 46, of Wickerwood Drive, Sutton-in-Ashfield, then pulled up level with Paul's van for him to throw a brick-sized block of heroin into the Audi with police still hot on his tail.
A second block was thrown out of Paul's window by the side of the highway.
Mark pulled up at the side of the road. An eye witness told him: "It looks like drugs to me" and Mark replied, "I'll take that to the ******* coppers".
Once the drugs were clear of the car, police pulled up and arrested Paul.
Judge Sally Hancox, who sentenced the gang, said a supply line for both heroin and cutting agents was in operation between Sheffield and Sutton-in-Ashfield, with both items being transported in bulk in exchange for many thousands of pounds in cash.
"This transportation was arranged in both convoys of private vehicles and in taxis, driven by those within the conspiracy. Once within Nottinghamshire, the heroin was prepared for onward distribution, both in wholesale and street scale amounts.
"The operation within Nottinghamshire utilised private homes, a storage facility and a concealed site at a rural location used to store the drugs".
She told Paul he sought, where he believed it necessary, to seek to conceal or dispose of evidence.
And she told Mark, who she jailed for ten years and nine months: "You were confident enough in your role at that time to collect discarded heroin, indicating that you would take it to the police, when, in fact, it would return to be used in the futherance of the conspiracy".
