Four people were arrested after five units went to deal with the stolen Volkswagen Passat at 2.20am on Thursday.

The car had been reported stolen from Peterborough in Cambridgeshire and officers, after following the vehicle, deployed a stinger to bring the car to a stop.

Four people inside the car - two men and two women, aged between 16 and 39 - were arrested and were taken to Great Yarmouth Police Investigation Centre for questioning.

Police dogs Harry and Harley also attended, but they were not required to take any action.
