A teenager is in police custody after a stinger was used to end a pursuit involving a car and caravan.

Officers attempted to stop the vehicle on the A63 near Sherburn-in-Elmet at 10.45pm last night.

The driver failed to stop and police, prompting officers to give chase.

They followed the car and caravan for several miles along the A63 before deploying a stinger device near Gateforth. The device burst tyres on both the car and caravan, bringing the vehicle to a halt.

A 19-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of the theft of the car and caravan, failing to stop and dangerous driving.

He remains in custody while police enquiries continue.
