Stealthy police officers made a great catch as they managed to detain a burglar when he jumped out of a window.

Officers were called on Tuesday evening to a report of a burglary that was in progress at a property close to Lomeshaye Way in Nelson.

When they arrived, the man tried to escape from the police by jumping out of the window but instead, fell straight into the arms of waiting officers below.

A spokesperson for the police said: "The man was arrested for burglary and is now in custody."
