A stolen car has been seized by police after a sharp-eyed off-duty officer spotted it being driven “erratically” near Market Harborough.

The white SUV’s driver was quickly stopped by a patrol car after the alarm was raised.

Officers made one arrest as they found the vehicle had been stolen last month – and was carrying false number plates.
