Officers pursued the group up the M1 after spotting the vehicle - a Honda CRV stolen during a West Yorkshire burglary on March 3 - on Long Eaton’s Bostock Lane.

The chase began at 2.40am and ended ten minutes later near junction 27 of the M1 where two men, aged 18 and 45 and a 17 year-old youth, were arrested for failing to stop for police and driving without insurance.
