The police helicopter was deployed in a bid to foil a suspected metal theft at a Mansfield industrial estate. Officers were alerted to the potential theft after a vehicle was reportedly spotted on fake plates.
Police say the car was seen entering an industrial estate slowly. It then left the compound.

The National Police Air Service helicopter was deployed and the vehicle later located on the A616. Police caught up with it at around 8pm on Thursday (June 30), but say the motorist did not stop when requested.
