Stolen car in flames after police chase

A police chase ended in flames after a stolen car crashed in Hurley today.

Just after noon police attempted to stop a black Mercedes CLK which was stolen from London on November 14.

A police spokesman said: "The car rammed two police cars and failed to stop. It was then involved in a collision on the A4130, in Hurley, with a silver Chrysler. The stolen Mercedes caught fire following the collision and was severely damaged."

Two men, aged 18 and 23, believed to be the driver and passenger, were arrested nearby on suspicion of burglary and property was recovered.

A female passenger from the Chrysler needed hospital treatment for minor injuries.

Paul Roche, of Hurley High Street, said: "I saw a car in flames, it wasn't just the engine, the whole car was all burnt."

He spoke to a neighbour who said there was a stinger in the road to stop the car.

He added: "Police were all over it, the police helicopter was overhead from midday and there was a police car down the road."

Henley Road re-opened at 3pm.
