A man has admitted dangerous driving after a car ended up on its roof with a woman and toddler inside.

The Vauxhall Corsa caught fire in the crash in Tamworth Road, Long Eaton, and the woman and 18-month-old were rescued and treated for minor injuries.

Liam Swinfield, 25, was arrested by police in a nearby canal after the crash on 12 January.

He has also pleaded guilty to failing to stop after an accident, driving without a licence and insurance.

Police said Swinfield hit five cars before losing control of the vehicle, leaving it flipped on its roof.

The court heard he was on licence at the time of the crash for an offence of conspiracy to commit fraud and the sentence was due to expire 6 November 2019.

Recorder Timothy Green told him that an immediate prison term was likely.

Swinfield, of Marriott Avenue, in Chilwell, Nottingham, who appeared in court via video link from HMP Nottingham, is due to be sentenced at Derby Crown Court on 25 February.
