Two men were arrested after they stole a telehandler in the UK and then managed to overturn it as they made their escape.

The machine was stolen from Thimbleby, near Northallerton in North Yorkshire, late on Monday night, and then spotted following a car on the road to Darlington. The police were called out and caught up with the thieves on a small bridge over the River Tees between Dinsdale and Girsby, where the driver had managed to overturn it. 

They spotted a car making an escape and after having caught up with it arrested two men one aged 65 and the other 29.
