The dog unit and police helicopter were called in to help detain the three men inside the van, who were arrested.

The vehicle was full of TVs and other electrical equipment that had been stolen in Derbyshire.

The goods were still in their packaging, suggesting they may have been taken from warehouses or from lorries during transit.

South Yorkshire Police began the pursuit on the M1 before the van entered the Leeds area.
