The yellow vehicle was pursued to Granville Country Park, Donnington, where it damaged a gate, on Sunday night.

West Mercia Police's Shropshire operational patrol unit posted on social media network Twitter: "Not the first piece of stolen plant machinery found making its way into the Granville at Donnington. One in custody following rather slow pursuit!"

The image shows the truck and a damaged gate can be seen behind it at about 9.30pm.
