Drone successfully spots two men on the run from police


A drone has been successful in tracking down two men on the run from the police in Doncaster.

Two men ran off during a police chase in December, jumping from a car travelling on false number plates and escaping from officers, while one was detained.

The police drone was then deployed to track the suspects.

The two men tried to flee in the Hyde Park area, and despite the undergrowth, information from the drone footage was fed back to officers on the ground who were then able to locate the suspects.

South Yorkshire Police has recently invested in a fleet of drones to be used at crime scenes, during major incidents and to help in searches for missing people.
