A 17-year-old boy and an 18-year-old man who tried to escape from police by swimming away in a canal after being pursued from Chesterfield to Worksop have been arrested on suspicion of dangerous driving.

Derbyshire police officers started following a car at 2.10am this morning after it was seen allegedly speeding and driving dangerously.
