Police arrested two men and two boys after officers spotted a blue car being driven “erratically” in Hatfield.

A Herts Police spokeswoman told the Welwyn Hatfield Times: “Officers came across a vehicle being driven erratically in Southway just after 9pm on Monday, August 27.

“They signalled for the vehicle to stop but it failed to do so.

“It then came to a stop in Garden Avenue.”

According to eyewitnesses, eight police cars were present at the scene when the car came to a stop in Garden Avenue.

Four people were subsequently arrested on suspicion of taking a motor vehicle without consent. They were:

•An 18-year-old man from Edgware, Middlesex. He has been released under investigation.

•A 15-year-old boy from Edgware, Middlesex. He has been released under investigation.

•A 23-year-old man from Hatfield. He was further arrested on suspicion of driving with no insurance, driving whilst otherwise in accordance with a licence and failing to stop for police. He has been released on police bail.

•A 17-year-old boy from Edgware, Middlesex. He has been released under investigation.
