A VAN was tracked for miles by police after cable was stolen from roadworks on the M25.

Officers followed the vehicle along the A41 before pulling it over in a lay-by on London Road, Tring, at around 9pm last Tuesday (March 15).

The trio of men inside the van were arrested on suspicion of theft after around 10m of cable was snatched from roadworks between J21 and 21A of the M25.

A 34-year-old from Chelmsford, a 32-year-old from Long Marston and a 23-year-old from Hemel Hempstead have all been police bailed until May 3.
