Police apprehended four men following a high-profile chase across Gloucestershire yesterday afternoon following a burglary at a Cirencester business.

They got into a grey VW Passat and drove off, by which time officers were on the hunt for the thieves.

Chasing on foot and in cars, as well as using specialist dogs and a drone, officers searched Stroud, Harebushes, Painswich and the Salmon Springs estate.

Two men were arrested by 1pm with the other two apprehended shortly afterwards. All four of the men were taken into custody.
