A stinger was used by police to stop a stolen car following a pursuit that ended in Great Yarmouth.

Four people were arrested after the Range Rover Vogue was taken from the Tesco car park in Stalham, at about 12.30pm on Thursday, December 14.

The car owner, a man in his 20s, was there to meet a friend when he was approached by three men. They threatened him and then stole his vehicle.

A Norfolk police spokesman said: “At about 8.30am intelligence led officers to attempt to stop the stolen vehicle near to the Gapton Hall roundabout. “The vehicle failed to stop and was pursued. After damage was caused to two police vehicles and a stinger deployed the vehicle came to a stop.

“Four people were arrested in connection with the incident and taken to Great Yarmouth police investigation centre for questioning.”

anyone with information should call DS Craig Lovatt at Great Yarmouth CID on 101.
