TWO men were followed by a police helicopter after an attempt was made to break into a car in Reedley this morning.

Police were alerted by the owner of the car after he spotted two men at the car, which was parked in Woodend Road, at just after 8.50am.

The men ran off after being disturbed and were chased by some residents before the police helicopter was deployed to try and trace them.

Two arrests were made by officers in fields near Habergham in Burnley.
