Two men were arrested last night after an incident in Bowdon which saw a police vehicle rammed and a 15-minute pursuit.

Greater Manchester Police have reported that officers were deployed to Marlow Drive after reports of an attempted burglary.

The men then used their vehicle to ram a police car before driving off, with police in pursuit.

Eventually the alleged offenders fled on foot, but were tracked down by police dogs.

Both men were arrested and detained for “various offences”.

Officers have now thanks local residents who assisted in the incident last night, calling it a “great example of residents helping the police, much appreciated”.
