Police seized a machete from a 17-year-old boy after chasing a car through Dudley.

A 22-year-old man was also arrested alongside the teenager following the pursuit close to the Russells Hall estate yesterday.

The two arrests came as part of a crackdown on drug dealing and vehicle theft in the borough.

A West Midlands Police spokesman said: "They remain in police custody for questioning."

The brief police chase led to the 22-year-old man being arrested in Corbyn Road on suspicion of theft of a motor vehicle and supplying drugs.

Later on, the 17-year-old boy was arrested on suspicion of motor vehicle theft, possession of an offensive weapon and drugs offences.
