Officers were alerted to a blue Audi S5 after a driver was seen to be acting suspiciously just after 12.30pm on March 22.

Before officers could pursue the car, the Audi collided with another car. Two men got out of the car on Longfields.

A 19-year-old man from Chelmsford was arrested on suspicion of theft of a motor vehicle and possession with intent to supply drugs.

He has since been released pending further investigation.

The other man is still outstanding.
