Two suspected thieves have been arrested for attempted murder after a Leicestershire Police Roads Policing Unit was rammed during a pursuit.
Officers were on patrol and had been alerted to a spate of thefts where the suspects were seen to drive away in a white van.
When the roads policing unit officers spotted the van, it made off from them, initiating a pursuit.
During the pursuit, the driver of the white van rammed several police cars, causing extensive damage to the front end of a marked BMW.
The van was eventually stopped after officers used a Tactical Pursuit & Containment manoeuvre on the van.
Two males were arrested at the scene for attempted murder, theft, dangerous driving and failing to stop.
Thankfully, no police officers were seriously injured.
