Mercedes has tyres popped by police and 'grinds to a halt' during 140mph motorway chase
A high-speed motorway chase ended when police used a stinger to pop a suspect vehicle's car.
Officers began pursuing the Mercedes on the M61 after saying it was "reported by numerous people driving badly earlier in Lytham," according to a tweet at 1.50am today by the county's roads policing unit.
"After using the hard shoulder, the vehicle was stung at almost 140mph before grinding to a halt," the force added.
"All occupants arrested."
No more information was given, including how many people were held and what for.
