Recommended Posts

An 11-year-old boy was found behind the wheel when police pulled over a BMW X5 towing a suspected stolen caravan on the M1.

North Yorkshire Police arrested the boy on suspicion of theft, burglary and motoring offences including dangerous driving.

Officers received a call at about 15:30 GMT on Thursday that a caravan had been stolen from a holiday site near Thirsk.

They tracked a BMW they said was using cloned plates heading south on the A1.

The force said that 45 minutes after the caravan was reported stolen "we stopped the vehicle on the M1 after it left the A1 at Hook Moor Interchange near Garforth".

The boy has been released on conditional bail with further inquiries being carried out.

Police said a selection of vehicle registration plates was found when they searched the vehicle.

The force confirmed no-one had been injured.
