A man who had been towing a stolen caravan with no headlights was arrested after failing to stop for police.

Police attempted to stop a Mitsubishi Shogun, which was being driven with no headlights and was towing a caravan, on the A47 towards Wisbech at around 11.30pm on Sunday, April 29.

The driver did not stop, which resulted in a pursuit along the A47, through Tilney St Lawrence, along Magdalen Road and then onto Common Road, where the vehicle stopped in a field and the driver fled the scene.

After extensive searches including dog and drone units, a male, aged in his 40s, was detained and taken in police custody for questioning.

Further enquiries identified that the caravan which was being towed had been stolen from an address about 35 miles away in Holt, also on Sunday, April 29.

The male has subsequently been released under investigation pending further enquiries.
