Police detained three people last night after they chased one man on a stolen motorbike and arrested two others.

Police pursued the man and detained him on Factory Lane in Diss where one stolen motorbike was recovered.

But another man riding in convoy got away as it was too dangerous for police to follow him as he was not wearing a helmet.

The man was identified and the motorcycle he was riding was later found on Willbye Avenue in the town.

Two other motorbikes were recovered from premises on Ladbroke Close.

Three people were taken into custody at Wymondham police investigation centre overnight.

Inspector Jason Selvarajah said: “ Officers at Diss worked a 14 hour shift which demonstrates our commitment to helping make Diss a safer place.”
