TWO men have been arrested after police were alerted to a break-in at the Jaguar Land Rover garage in Melksham.

A CCTV operator called police shortly after 10.30pm last night on Tuesday (July 9) night after a man had been spotted in the Hampton Park West site trying the door handles of cars and removing parts from the vehicles.

Officers attended and, following a short chase on foot, arrested and detained two men.

A 40-year-old man and a 22-year-old man, both from Faversham in Kent, were arrested on suspicion of theft and are both in custody at Melksham Police Station.

A number of items, including a bag of tools, a balaclava, and numerous car parts, have also been seized.

Police enquiries are currently ongoing.
