A police chase through Whyteleafe came to an interesting conclusion last week when a member of the public stepped in to play the hero's role.

An officer from Tandridge Beat police was in the midst of a foot chase in Godstone Road when out of the blue a Prius driver offered a lift.

Considering it was 1am, who were they to say no.

So thanks to a little help, two men were arrested on suspicion of various drug and knife offences after the car was searched.

The police weren't short on praise either.

"We want to say a big thank you, as with your help the two men were arrested.

"We can't always tell the public everything but if we think you are committing crime in Tandridge we will be after you."
