Two men have been charged with drugs offences following a police chase through a Suffolk town.

Ali Al-Rashed was also charged with dangerous driving.

Police arrested two men in the Arnhem Road area of Leiston at about 1pm last Friday after a Toyota Yaris failed to stop for officers.

The suspects decamped and made off on foot before being arrested shortly afterwards.
