Following the robbery and joyride of a Tesco van, police detain two men.


Police used a stinger device to stop a Tesco van that had been hijacked and taken for a joyride.

The delivery van was taken after 5 p.m. on Friday in Newtownards, Northern Ireland, according to the PSNI, before being taken on an impromptu tour of neighboring towns.

In order to get the police to stop the van at a busy Belfast bypass, two men forced the driver out of the van and drove it from Ards to Dundonald and then Holywood.

The men, aged 23 and 39, were promptly arrested.
