two men have been arrested after a car crashed into a garage in a Highbridge street while being pursued by police.

A grey Ford Mondeo crashed into the garage in John Street on January 6, causing a large amount of damage to the building, after the vehicle had been chased by a police car when officers noticed it was being ‘driven suspiciously’.

The car’s driver was arrested shortly after the crash, which occurred at around 1.35pm.

A passenger from the vehicle fled from the scene, but he has since also been apprehended.
