A man has been arrested after police chased a stolen tractor for 15 miles across the Norfolk-Cambridgeshire border.

The police chase included a helicopter and they tailed the tractor for half an hour.

Officers were first called to a farm at Tilney St Lawrence, near King's Lynn, just before 8pm on Saturday.

They chased the vehicle to Oakroyd Crescent in Wisbech - around 15 miles away - where the driver jumped out and ran off.

The tractor - a Case Puma 160 - was abandoned just in front of homes on the residential street but police said no damage was caused.

Officers confirmed a man in his 20s had been arrested in connection with the theft.
