Three men, all in their teens, have been arrested after police chased a car from the A16 at Holton le Clay towards Coningsby and then Swaby.

A police spokesperson said officers had been made aware of a blue MG which was travelling on the A16 in the area of Holton le Clay just after 10am.

Police believe the car had been stolen from the Derbyshire area.

After the car failed to stop, police pursued it towards Coningsby and then Swaby where the vehicle was brought safely to a halt at 10.35am.

The male driver and two male passengers, aged 17, 18 and 16, were arrested and taken into custody at Skegness Police Station for questioning.

5pm Thursday: Three people have been arrested after police chased a car, which had apparently been stolen from Derbyshire, along the A16 after it was spotted near Louth earlier today.

The Lincoln and Boston arms of the Lincolnshire Roads Policing Unit were deployed after the vehicle was spotted crossing the border into the county, according to the @LincsRPU Twitter feed.

The vehicle was then spotted near Louth and, after failing to stop and making off at speed, it was chased along the A16, both on and off the road.

The RPU and officers from Louth managed to safely stop the car near Swaby and arrested ‘all the occupants’ of the vehicle.

A spokesperson said three people were arrested from the vehicle in connection with the incident. They are ‘helping police with their enquiries’.

“No-one was hurt and the incident was resolved safely,” they added.

Lincolnshire Police have so far been unavailable to give further information about the incident.
