Police have arrested two men on suspicion of stealing a large quantity of diesel from firms in Smalley and Codnor.

The men were arrested after police stopped a van they had been looking for in connection with incidents in the area in Eastwood on Thursday.

An investigation is currently ongoing into the theft of fuel from vehicles at Alsop Plant and Haulage on Heanor Road in Smalley, and Cloudbass on High Holborn Road in Codnor.

A 32 year-old man and a 22 year-old man, both from Nottingham, were questioned by officers and have been bailed pending further enquiries.
