Police were pursuing a grey VW Golf in Queen Street at about 2.30pm when it collided with a red Vauxhall Astra opposite St Mary’s Church.

After attempting to drive along the pavement at the junction for Hollow Lane and heading in the direction of the nearby pedestrian crossing, a police car rammed the VW against the railings – forcing it to stop on the pavement.

A man and woman were subsequently arrested and have been taken into custody at Stevenage Police Station.

Anyone with information is asked to call police on 101.
