Three men remain in custody after this pursuit from our Road Policing Unit yesterday that started in Farnworth and ended in Walkden.
The lengthy pursuit began when officers spotted a vehicle suspected of being stolen from Bolton on 2 October and believed to have been involved in a dozen offences since. The car has since been recovered.
Two 18-year-old men and a 20-year-old man were all arrested on suspicion of theft of a motor vehicle. One of the teenagers is also being held on suspicion of disqualified driving and dangerous driving.
Inspector Jon Shilvock, of our RPU, said: "What could have been a really dangerous incident was managed superbly by the officers involved to ensure that we were able to take three suspects into custody without compromising the safety of the general public.
"We are continuing to take the fight back to criminals involved in car crime and I hope the public are able to recognise the extents we are trained and prepared to go to in order to stop those we believe are responsible."
