'Burglars' trapped in Berkshire car crash

Two suspected burglars had to be cut free when the car they were travelling in crashed into a wall in Berkshire.

Police were patrolling Shinfield, near Reading, when a Fiat Bravo made off at speed at about 03:00 BST.

They followed the car and later found it had crashed. The driver had fled but the two passengers had to be cut free.

Police found a number of items in the car linked to a burglary in Hampshire and arrested the pair, both 22, after they had been checked at a hospital.

The car was not being pursued at the time of the crash in Oatlands Road, a force spokesman said
