Four men have been arrested after leading officers on a car chase from Irchester to Corby.

Officers came across the car, believed to be a hire vehicle which had not been returned on time, at Irchester Country Park in the early hours of today (Thursday),

But when approached by police, the occupants drove off and failed to stop.

Police pursued the car from the park and travelled more than 20 miles before officers could bring the Peugeot 208 to a standstill in Corby at about 4am.

All four occupants were arrested on suspicion of theft of a car and were due to be interviewed.
