Two arrested after stolen van stopped on M54
Two men were arrested after police stopped a stolen van with a stinger.
Police spotted the stolen Mercedes Sprinter in Telford yesterday and stopped it on the M54.
The blue van was stopped at about 6.20am.
A spokesman for the Central Motorway Police Group said: "Our patrols assisted the Operation Patrol Unit for Shropshire in stopping this stolen Mercedes Sprinter with a stinger. Two were arrested."
A stinger, also known as a spike strip, is laid out on the road to stop the movement of a vehicle by puncturing its tyres.
Generally the strip is made up of long metal barbs pointed upwards.
