The Mini Countryman was seen by West Midlands Police officers who, after checks, found the car had been stolen in a burglary, had been cloned and was being used by a man wanted by police.

Police said the driver decamped from the car in a housing estate near Bilston following a pursuit, and then attempted to escape on foot.

However, he was subsequently caught and arrested following a foot chase on the entrance to the Khalsa Academy.
