Police in Crawley made two arrests after a motorcyclist and passenger who failed to stop for officers were followed and traced with the aid of a police helicopter.

The motorcycle sped away from officers seeking to make routine check on it in Brighton Road, Crawley, shortly after 1.30pm on Thursday (22 August). It was followed through nearby streets before being abandoned in the Southgate area less than an hour later.

A man aged 18 and a boy aged 17 were arrested nearby on suspicion of dangerous driving and other driving offences. After being interviewed they were released under investigation.
