A police chase which began in Banbridge last night, and involved a PSNI helicopter, ended in Craigavon - and with a man being arrested.

Officers on patrol in Banbridge noticed men acting suspiciously in a vehicle and signalled for it to stop, which it failed to do.

A pursuit ensued, assisted by the police helicopter, and the vehicle was eventually stopped in Pinebank.

A spokesperson said one man was arrested for various motoring offences and is now in custody.
