SIX people were arrested after a car was spotted driving erratically in Blackburn following a burglary.

Offenders broke in to a home in Woodlands Grove, Darwen, to steal the keys to the car.

A member of the public then spotted them driving erratically in Blackburn this morning and followed them giving police updates on where the vehicle was heading.

The car was then abandoned and officers detained six suspects.

A spokesman said: "The suspects are all under the influence of drink or drugs at this time but will be interviewed in due course.

"Our thanks to the member of the public for contacting the police, who then followed the car whilst giving us updates.

"Another example of us not being able to our job without your help."
