A boy has been arrested following a police chase that saw a stolen VW Golf collide with a parked car.
Yesterday (Thursday 24 March) afternoon officers from the roads policing team tried to stop the car in Leamington Road, Ryton when it fled from them.
During the short pursuit, officers reported the suspect drove at high speeds on the wrong side of the road before colliding with a parked car.
Further enquiries showed the car had been stolen following a break in at a business in Fenny Compton earlier in the year.
