Two people were arrested after police followed a 4×4 that had been reported as stolen.

Officers were called at around 3 pm on Sunday when it was seen travelling at speed along Diamond Avenue, Sutton-in-Ashfield.

The vehicle was spotted around half an hour later near Derby Road and followed towards Annesley.

It was abandoned a short time later after driving into the Newstead Abbey estate.

A 15-year-old boy was arrested a short time later on suspicion of dangerous driving, failing to stop, theft of a motor vehicle, driving without a licence, and driving without insurance.

An 18-year-old woman was also arrested on suspicion of theft of a motor vehicle.

Both were later released on bail.

PC Joshua Gibbons, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “I am pleased this pursuit was brought to a safe conclusion and that we were able to bring two suspects into custody.

“Driving in this way is extremely dangerous and will always generate a very strong police response.”
