Three arrested after car chase

A MOTORIST was allegedly attacked after being pursued by a gang through Batley and Dewsbury.

The victim’s black Honda Civic was followed from the Shell petrol station on Bradford Road in Batley by two cars at around 12.30am last Thursday.

Two more vehicles joined in a 20-minute chase that travelled from Batley into Dewsbury several times.

Police believe the Civic was pursued up and down Bradford Road, around Batley Carr and then back into Dewsbury.

It pulled into the Cliffe Street car park at around 1.0am, where the 21-year-old driver was assaulted.

Though not badly hurt, his car and several other vehicles were damaged in the incident.

Three men from Batley, two aged 20 and a 22-year-old, were arrested. Police enquiries are continuing.

Det Sgt Ady Belle, of Kirklees CID, said the cars involved have been recovered for examination.

He appealed for witnesses and added: “We are continuing to liaise with community leaders.”

Anyone with information can call Kirklees CID on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
