Two people have been arrested after a police pursuit near Wisbech.

The drama began when officers saw a silver VW Golf with cloned number plates.

They gave chase from the A47 to the B1166 near Wisbech St Mary, where a stinger was deployed.

A passenger tried to make a run for it but was caught by a police dog. They and the driver were arrested.
