Police arrested two people after dramatically stopping a car in Ilkeston this morning (Thursday).

Two plain clothes officers in an unmarked police car stopped the silver BMW after a ‘short pursuit’ down Heanor Road at about 11.30am, a police spokesman said.

There were two marked police cars on the scene, as well as a number of officers.

A man and a woman, both thought to have been occupants in the BMW were handcuffed and driven away in the unmarked vehicle just before the pedestrian crossing at the bottom of the road.

A force spokesman said the officers thought the car was ‘suspicious’ and gave chase.

More details to follow.
