Then at 11.15am on Saturday, officers spotted the stolen vehicle driving along Watergate Lane, Over Hulton. The Mercedes was pursued down the southbound M61 where it exited at J3 for the Kearsley spur, before attempting to do a u-turn and drive against the flow of traffic. The officers were able to make tactical contact and bring the Mercedes a stop.
A 15-year-old boy was arrested on suspicion of robbery, dangerous driving and driving whilst disqualified. He was taken to hospital to be treated for injuries sustained in the collision but has since been released.
Officers also arrested a 21-year-old man and a 15-year-old boy on suspicion of robbery. All three remain in custody for questioning.
