These are the two Sheffield burglars who tried to escape from police in a 140mph chase down the M1 across two counties.

Luke Comer, aged 20, and 21-year-old Dale Mulligan wore masks as they attempted a break-in at a house in Mansfield.

When the raid was aborted, police in Nottinghamshire pursued their stolen Vauxhall Corsa before officers in Derbyshire took up the chase on the M1.

The pair then drove at 140mph for several miles before exiting the motorway at Barlborough, speeding across a grass verge to avoid a police ‘stinger’ device.

Comer and Mulligan were finally arrested after officers were directed by the police helicopter, but a third man escaped.

Both men were jailed for five years.
