The team said: “It thought twice about stopping in Sprotbrough, and when it eventually did, having found it's engine not quite sprightly enough to outrun the BMWs.

“The occupants legged it. No match were they though for our legs this evening and all were detained.

Items recovered by police.

“The driver was reported for the motoring offences and one of the passengers was found with a bit of cannabis.

“The latter had also discarded the rather scary looking knife as he ran too.

“He can expect a court date for both of those matters in the near future.”
