Police in South Yorkshire say they arrested four people after ramming a stolen car following a chase through Sheffield.

The pursuit started after a Ford Fiesta drove off when firearms officers tried to stop it on the Manor estate on Sunday.

A spokesman for the South Yorkshire Police operational support unit said it then drove the wrong way up Prince of Wales Road.

Officers used a patrol car to ram the Fiesta to bring it to a stop.

A spokesman said: "The vehicle turned out to be a stolen one from the Sheffield area on false plates.

"Within the vehicle were numerous weapons including knives. The vehicle was also suspected to have been involved in an attempted theft on the Manor estate just prior to the pursuit commencing."

A number of people have been charged with various offences following the incident.
