Three people have been arrested after the police helicopter was called out to help track two motorbikes stolen during a burglary in Brighton.
The helicopter was circling over Brighton and Hove yesterday afternoon (Thursday 8 December), circling an area that appeared to include Hangleton, West Blatchington and the A27 Brighton bypass.
The incident was triggered after the motorbikes were reported to have been stolen from a garage in Kemp Town.

“A 17-year-old boy was later also arrested on suspicion of theft.
