The pursuit began in Wordsley on Saturdaynight before traffic officers chased the wanted vehicle into the dark lanes of the countryside.

The suspected thieves eventually came to a stop and tried to flee on foot - but officers chased them down and arrested them.

They were arrested on suspicion of motor vehicle theft alongside possession of drugs with intent to supply.

Body cam footage, taken from an officer inside the pursuing police car, showed the chase taking the vehicles at speed through dark narrow lanes.

It marked a busy night for police on the roads in Dudley on Saturday.

Officers chased two people in Brierley Hill for almost an hour with the help of a police helicopter before the two suspects were arrested for offences on suspicion of dangerous driving and drugs.
