Two men have been arrested, with the help of a police dog, after a pursuit near Selby.
Police attempted to stop a suspected cloned 4x4 which is believed to be linked to a recent house burglary in the area.
The driver failed to stop and was followed by police in a pursuit that also involved a police helicopter from the National Police Air Service (NPAS).
The vehicle came to a stop in a country lane near Brayton and there was a short foot pursuit across a field.
Both men were arrested during the incident, which began at around 9pm yesterday.
A police dog deployed during the pursuit helped pursue and detain one of the suspects.
Both men are in their 30s and from the Kirklees area of West Yorkshire.
They remain in police custody and an investigation is ongoing today.
