A 15-year-old boy was arrested a short time later on suspicion of dangerous driving, failing to stop, theft of a motor vehicle, driving without a licence, and driving without insurance.

An 18-year-old woman was also arrested on suspicion of theft of a motor vehicle.

Both were later released on bail.

PC Joshua Gibbons, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “I am pleased this pursuit was brought to a safe conclusion and that we were able to bring two suspects into custody.

“Driving in this way is extremely dangerous and will always generate a very strong police response.”
