A MAN was arrested after a police chase through Whitefield and Bury this morning.

Officers pursued a suspected stolen white Vauxhall Corsa that failed to stop in Bury New Road at about 10.10am.

They followed the car down Manchester Road towards Bury, and the car eventually came to a stop when it collided with a fence in Parliament Place.

A 29-year-old man attempted to escape on foot, but officers chased and caught him.

He was arrested on suspicion of theft of a motor vehicle and dangerous driving. He remains in custody for questioning.
