SIX teenagers have been arrested after a police drone helped chase them down.

North Yorkshire officers received a report that a set of car keys had been stolen from a property in the Whitcliffe Lane area of Ripon at 5.15pm on bonfire night and a grey Honda CRV was taken from outside.

Officers located the vehicle on the A61 a short time later before losing sight of it.

Through the use of ANPR (Automatic Number Plate Recognition), officers tracked and located the vehicle and pursued it into a cul-de-sac in Harrogate.

The car was abandoned and officers pursued the occupants with support of a police drone before making six arrests.

Two 15 year-old boys, two 14 year-old boys, a 13-year-old boy and a 14 year-old girl were arrested in connection with the car key burglary and have been released on bail while enquiries continue.
