Man Arrested After Milk Van Theft In Birmingham
Police have made an arrest after using a "stinger'' device to halt a stolen milk van which was being driven the wrong way along a dual carriageway in Birmingham.
West Midlands Police detained a 28-year-old on suspicion of theft after the open-sided delivery van left a trail of milk bottles and bread along a major route in Small Heath.
Officers were alerted after the Ford Transit-based vehicle was taken from an address near the city's New Street station.
Patrol cars then spotted the cart at Camp Hill Circus, where it failed to stop for officers before heading the wrong way along the nearby A45.
Its wheels were eventually punctured about three miles (4.8km) away in Withdean Close, where the 28-year-old was arrested.
Force incident manager Chief Inspector Simon Pemberton said: "It's not often our officers are called to pursue a milk van.
"The suspect left a trail of breakfast destruction in his wake, with bottles of milk and loaves of bread strewn along Small Heath Highway.
"The van was being driven very erratically and dangerously, at times on the wrong side of major A-roads, so a decision was taken to deflate its tyres with a 'stinger'.
"Even when the milk van was boxed in down a cul-de-sac, the driver was revving his engine aggressively and shunted into one of the police cars.
"Our officers managed to bring the pursuit to a successful conclusion. No other vehicles were damaged and no other members of the public were hurt.''
A police spokesman said the man remained in police custody on suspicion of theft, dangerous driving, refusing to give a sample of breath, driving while disqualified, and failing to stop for officers.
The funeral has taked place at Lichfield Cathedral for the woman who became Britain's first rape victim to waive her right to anonymity.
An 18-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of murdering Leonne Weeks, 16, who was found dead on a path in Rotherham.
Inquests into the deaths of the 30 Britons, including four from the West Midlands, killed in the Tunisia beach massacre of 2015 will begin today.
