A DRAMATIC police chase involving cop cars, motorbikes and a helicopter resulted in the arrest of a suspected car thief on a Sheffield estate.

Surprised residents watched six police cars sweep into the Erskine Road area of Arbourthorne in pursuit of a 28-year-old man from another part of the city.

A helicopter hovered overhead while police motorbikes zipped between Erskine Crescent, Erskine Road and Erskine View, off East Bank Road.

Officers chased the man on foot before he was finally arrested, shortly after 10.30am yesterday. A South Yorkshire Police spokeswoman said he was suspected of burglary and the theft of vehicle.
