A man has been arrested following a pursuit of a 30 tonne articulated dumper truck, which was reported to have been stolen earlier today.

Six police cars and a helicopter were involved in the chase, which was reported to be heading towards Methwold a short time ago.

Officers were initially called to the Thickthorn roundabout, on the outskirts of Norwich, at around 12.30pm today, following reports that the lorry had been stolen and was being driven dangerously.

But a man, said to be in his late 30s, has now been detained after the vehicle stopped on the A134 in Brandon.
