Sparking car pursued by police along Yorkshire border

Police were alerted to a 4x4 with false number plates when sparks were seen flying from beneath a suspected stolen generator it was towing.

North Yorkshire Police tweeted the vehicle was spotted on the A19 near Askern, between Doncaster and Selby.

Officers said the generator unit, which had lost a wheel, came off the car as the driver made his escape by going off-road.

The force is appealing for anyone with information to get in touch.
