Soldiers tackle suspected thief

A suspected quad bike thief was chased straight into the path of a squad of special force soldiers by a farmer from County Durham.

Dutch paratroopers knelt on the suspect's back until police arrived to arrest him, outside Tow Law, on Monday.

Farmer, Nick Walker, 26, had chased the man three miles on another vehicle from his farm in Satley when he suspected him of taking the quad bike.

The 25-year-old suspect was charged with theft and driving offences.

The soldiers had been on their way to a training exercise in Otterburn, Northumberland when they intervened.

That'll make a very interesting convo with his cell mate in the nick

Quad thief "how did you get caught?"
Cell mate "was caught leaving on cctv, what about you?"
Quad thief "Was wrestled to the ground by Dutch Paras"
Cell mate "Always the way ain't it"

Tow Law, there's a surprise.
I would put good money on the git being from Bishop Auckland. If there is any justice it'll be the same tw@t that tried to nick my ZZR1100 a couple of years ago.
I would have been more appreciative if the Dutch types had stood on the fookers head for a while whilst waiting for Plod
It is nice to see one of them being caught though!

He will only get a slap on the wrist and told to be a good citizen. If only the Dutch para's had gave him a kicking he mighta learned a thing or two.

But then the police would have to arrest the Dutch paras and the thief would be a "victim"

the term "special forces" is becoming extremely loosely used by the media
Just another version of the infamous "If it bleeds, it leads" philosophy.

Special Forces, SAS etc sell newspapers even more than units, like the Cloggie Paras, who are an elite in their own right. :roll:
