A teenager has been arrested after a suspected stolen car crashed into a police car on Wakefield Road this afternoon.

The Volkswagen Passat collided with a BMW police car at around 12.20pm today.

The VW had been spotted by cameras and flagged as a stolen vehicle, leading to a police chase that ended with the crash.

The police car suffered minor damage and a teenage passenger was arrested on suspicion of theft of a motor vehicle. The driver fled the scene. There were no serious injuries.

The road was partially closed at the roundabout with Bowling Back Lane due to a suspected petrol spill, and re-opened at 2.07pm.
