A man has admitted stealing a dumper truck and leading police on a 30-mile chase across two counties.

The two-hour pursuit started near Norwich and ended in Brandon, Suffolk, last July.

At Norwich Magistrates' Court, Nicholas Churchill, 40, of Mounts Pit Lane, Brandon, admitted aggravated vehicle taking and dangerous driving, and driving while unfit through drugs.

He was bailed to appear for a further hearing at the crown court next month.

Mr Churchill drove the truck along major roads including the A140, A11 and A134.
