Two people have been arrested after police stopped a stolen car on the M1.

Derbyshire Roads Policing Unit said the Mercedes was stolen from Staffordshire in November.

The car with false plates was stopped last night, Wednesday, January 17.

A Roads Policing Unit spokesman said: "The Mercedes made off from Notts Police earlier in the evening. Picked up M1 South and stopped using pre-emptive tactics to prevent another pursuit.

"Both occupants were arrested."
