Police officers were on patrol in Luton’s Hollybush Road at about 1.45am on Wednesday when they signalled for a red Hyundai to stop.

The car was followed by police into Herts, where it crashed on the A507 Great North Road – just outside Baldock. Nobody was injured, but several vehicles were damaged.

Officers, with the help of police dog Tai, had detained the two teens at the scene by 2.25am.

A 15-year-old boy from Luton was arrested on suspicion of dangerous driving, aggravated unauthorised taking of a motor vehicle and failing to stop for police. He was released on police bail until June 24.
