Two men have been arrested after officers followed a car which they believed to have been stolen.
At about 5pm yesterday, officers driving along the A615 toward Matlock saw a black Audi A1 which they felt looked suspicious.
They followed the car and were joined by other units. The Audi was found abandoned in Jackson Road, Matlock.
Checks showed the car was registered to a house in the Greater Manchester area and had been reported stolen.
Derbyshire Police said:
‘Two 19-year-old men from Mansfield were arrested nearby on suspicion of failing to stop for police and burglary.
‘They have been questioned and released under investigation while inquiries continue. The Audi has been recovered and our colleagues at Greater Manchester Police have been informed.’
