Pursuit vehicles damaged after Ross-on-Wye robbery

Two police vehicles were damaged as they tried to stop a van after a robbery in Herefordshire.

A pursuit on the M50 and M5 followed after a large amount of food and tobacco was stolen at a swimming baths in Kyrle Street, Ross-on-Wye.

A lorry delivering vending machine items was targeted.

Three offenders loaded items into a van, which police lost at the Avoncroft Museum on the outskirts of Bromsgrove, after it drove through locked gates.

One of the men may have made off from the van at this point in Worcestershire, it is believed.

The driver of the lorry was not threatened and was unharmed.
