NORTH Wales Police officers swooped on a suspected stolen car.

The force's Intercept Team said the car (pictured) was reported stolen in the Greater Manchester area and had reached North Wales - meaning the "hunt was on".

With assistance from the Roads Policing Unit and Cheshire and North Wales Police Dogs Unit, the vehicle was successfully stopped in Kinmel Bay.

The four occupants were subsequently arrested for Unauthorised Taking of a Motor vehicle and were subsequently handed over to Greater Manchester Police.

The vehicle was recovered for the rightful owner just a matter of hours after being reported stolen.
