Four men arrested after M25 police chase in Surrey

Four men have been arrested after a car tried to drive the wrong way into oncoming traffic on the M25 in Surrey during a police chase.

Surrey Police said the vehicle, which was being driven by men suspected of an aggravated burglary in Dorset, was stopped at junction 13 near Staines.

The force said the driver then ran across several lanes of traffic before he was caught and arrested.

Part of the south-bound M25 has been shut following the incident on Sunday.

Surrey Police said the vehicle was being followed along the M3 and the M25 when it came off at junction 13, crossed the roundabout and then tried to drive the wrong way up the slip road into oncoming traffic.

'Forcibly stop vehicle'

The force said no-one was injured but the two police cars which stopped the Renault suffered "significant damage".

A spokeswoman for Surrey Police said: "Officers from Surrey Police were following the vehicle and, given the manner of its driving, two police vehicles were deployed to forcibly bring it to a stop at junction 13 to avoid injury to any members of the public.

"One man decamped from the car and ran across several lanes of traffic before being detained by police on the embankment and arrested.

"The remaining three male occupants of the vehicle were also arrested on suspicion of aggravated burglary.

"All four are now in custody at Woking Police Station."
