A man has been arrested after a police chase involving a 30-tonne dumper lorry.

Norfolk Police were called to reports the articulated vehicle had been stolen and was being driven dangerously shortly after 12.30pm.

Six police cars and the National Police Air Service helicopter were scrambled.

Officers were initially called to the Thickthorn roundabout on the outskirts of Norwich and chased the lorry along the A134 to Brandon in Suffolk.

The lorry was eventually stopped two hours later, the force said.

A man in his late 30s was arrested and is being questioned.
