Chopper chase leads to arrests

Have your say

SOUTH Yorkshire’s police helicopter joined forces with one used in neighbouring West Yorkshire to follow a stolen car travelling between the two counties.

The police pursuit started in Royston, Barnsley, in the early hours of yesterday and was handed over to West Yorkshire Police when the car crossed into Wakefield.

The South Yorkshire crew said they ‘shadowed’ the West Yorkshire chopper as the car headed back towards the county.

The chase ended in Wakefield where four arrests were made.

A police spokesman said: “It was nice co-ordination.”
