A motorist has died after his car was involved in a crash with a vehicle that was being followed by police.

Officers were pursuing a silver Mazda 3 which was thought to be involved in an attempted burglary when it collided with a green Vauxhall Vectra, which then hit an HGV.

The male driver of the Vectra died at the scene on the A46 near Flintham, Nottinghamshire, at around 1.50pm on Friday.

The Mazda was being pursued by several marked police cars and a police helicopter in connection with an attempted burglary in Leicestershire.

No one else was injured in the collision and the driver has not yet been identified by police.

Three men have been arrested.
