Ant and Nick Lovatt park their car as one of the officer’s heads towards another vehicle in the exclusive clip for Channel 5’s Traffic Cops due to air on October 28.
One of the men can be heard greeting the alleged dealers and the clip jumps to him talking the viewers through the nerve-wracking final moments.
Ant and Nick Lovatt (pictured right) wait to meet two suspected drug dealers in a carpark before the alleged criminals notice Horsley’s police badge and speed off
He noticed one of the men looking at him and his police badge in particular.
Moments later, he can be heard saying something similar to ‘hop on the door’ as his Nick watches on from the passenger seat.
A revved engine comes seconds after and the two officer’s are forced to tail the group of brazen youths in their car, somewhere in Derbyshire.
The group’s car disappears up the road and drives through a red light as they make a narrow escape from the police.
A car then turns right and blocks the two officer’s from their pursuit in the nail-bitingly tense clip.

As the car goes charging down the residential streets, one of the officer’s points out the youth walking down the pavement.
They make a drastic stop as one of them runs out and pulls them down – as the suspected dealer yells ‘what have I done?’
Derbyshire Police deal with a showdown in Scarborough, one of the county’s most prolific offenders who have been convicted more than 100 times, 19 violent arrests and a criminal’s rampage in a York pub.
Moments after Ant’s police badge is spotted by the alleged dealers, the pair of officers are forced on a chase as the car makes a hasty exit and through the residential streets
The car finds a space in front of a house and the officers spot them immediately. Lovatt jumps out of the car as it comes to a stand-still and leans into their car to grab them
