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.

“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.
