A GANG of suspected hare coursers were trapped on Monday after a high-speed police chase involving two helicopters across two counties.

Cambridgeshire police requested assistance after a tip-off that hare-coursing was taking place in Ashwell, a village near Royston. The men made their get-away in a grey estate car and were followed by police patrol cars and the helicopters from the two forces. But the offenders were eventually forced to stop after a dramatic cross-county chase by Herts police in Marford Road, Wheathampstead, near The Nelson pub. Four men were arrested in connection with the alleged offence.
