Police car chase ends with suspect ‘neck-deep’ in slurry pit

A car chase in Sussex came to a messy end after a man spectacularly fell neck-deep into a slurry pit while trying to outrun police.

Like a scene from an action thriller with an agricultural twist, the passenger of a stolen car was arrested once police found him up cow poo creak without a paddle.

Officers rescued the man from his deep dive into a world of cow pats, before handcuffing him in what has to be one of the smelliest arrests in history.

“Thanks to determined officers a rescue ensued, and they all ended up safe, but covered in cow poo.”
