Officers from Central Motorway Police Group stopped the vehicle and arrested four people inside on Friday evening.

They said the vehicle had been stolen in a violent car jacking earlier this month in the Birmingham area.

Officers tweeted: "Vehicle just stopped on the #M54 that was stolen in a violent car jacking earlier in August on @brumpolice area. Officers used #TPAC to stop the vehicle and have arrested 4 occupants. They were probably about to commit further offences with two machetes found in the cab."
