The driver of the Peugeot, 34, was trapped in the vehicle and fire-fighters attended to remove him. He has been taken to hospital for treatment to chest and back pain, and subsequently has been arrested for several offences. Enquiries are continuing in relation to the stolen vehicle.

It happened around 5.40pm this evening (Sunday 13 January) in Vulcan Place, at the junction of Eastgate, Worksop.
