Officers from West Norfolk police stopped two men in a black Toyota Aygo and found the car was a cloned and stolen vehicle, which had been taken in Essex on July 19.

The driver did not have a licence or insurance and both he and his passenger were arrested.

After police searched the car they found six 25 litre containers full of heating oil and siphoning equipment, and the car was linked to heating oil theft and vehicle interference the night before in Terrington St Clement.

At the scene of the oil theft, police then found a bag containing hairdressing equipment which had been stolen from a vehicle nearby.
