A 13-year-old was found behind the wheel of stolen car that was driven at speeds of up to 100mph before eventually being stopped by police.

The boy was in a Volkswagen Golf that had been reported stolen during a burglary in Shipley early on Monday.

West Yorkshire police officers pursued the car and used a stinger device to stop it in Bingley.

Two people were arrested, with one officer tweeting it was “shocking to find the driver was only 13 years old”.

West Yorkshire Police confirmed a 13-year-old and a 16-year-old boy had been arrested and were in custody.
