Two men have been arrested on suspicion of making threats to kill after a man was threatened with a machete.

They were detained in Essex, near junction 30 of the M25, following a police pursuit through Sussex and Kent.

It followed an incident in Sutherland Avenue, Bexhill, on Saturday morning.

The two suspects were in a BMW, which police traced to Frant and followed on the A21 and M25 through Kent, and into Essex via the Dartford Tunnel.

The vehicle was pursued by police units from Sussex and neighbouring forces, including a police helicopter and armed response vehicles.
