A magistrate has told how he and his son confronted a burglar after a dramatic 20-minute midnight chase through the streets.

Ajit Atwal pursued Chesterfield man Darren Richardson in Littleover after he tried to break into their home.

Richardson was due to be sentenced yesterday after being found guilty of attempted burglary – but failed to turn up at court. A warrant has now been put out for his arrest.
