Officers chased a speeding driver through Page Hall and a police search of nearby Longley Lane, Longley, led to a police dog biting a teenage girl.

South Yorkshire Police said officers were looking for suspected stolen property connected to the speeding car when the dog bit the 17-year-old.

A South Yorkshire Police spokeswoman said: "At about 5.15pm on Tuesday, officers in Sheffield engaged in a short pursuit in the Page Hall area after a car was seen to be exceeding the speed limit.
"The man driving the car was arrested by officers shortly afterwards.
"An officer and a police dog were deployed to the Longley Lane area to search for suspected stolen property in connection with the incident.
"During the search, a 17-year-old girl has been bitten by the dog. She was taken to hospital with what are believed to be minor injuries to her arm.
"An internal investigation will now take place in relation to the incident."
