The joyriders led West Mercia Police officers on a pursuit along a dual carriageway before being caught and arrested in the early hours of this morning.

The duo had stolen the moped and took it for a ride some time before 4.30am.

Operational Patrol Unit Shropshire tweeted: "Another couple for the naughty list!

"These pair thought it would be a great idea to steal a moped and lead us on a pursuit through #Telford.

"Unfortunately for these dim-witted pair they were swiftly caught and arrested."
