Two men have been arrested on suspicion of theft and dangerous driving after they were stopped on the M1 in the early hours of this morning (Thursday 3 August).
We were alerted by Nottinghamshire Police at around 12.50am to a lorry which was travelling northbound from junction 27, and concerns that the lorry, a white curtain sided Iveco, may have been stolen.
Officers from both Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire worked together to stop the vehicle just before junction 29.
Two men, aged 36 and 30 from the Kirklees area, were arrested on suspicion of failing to stop for police, theft and dangerous driving.
The 30-year-old was also arrested on suspicion of possession of cannabis.
Both men remain in custody in Derbyshire at this time.
Traffic was stopped on the M1 in both directions between junctions 28 and 29 for a while during the incident.
