The man ran across a car park to stop another man who was trying to escape police near Tesco Express on Flamborough Road last night.

Officers had been called to the street at 8.20pm and had stopped three men.

One ran off and was being chased by a police officer when the member of the public, who was going into Tesco Express, saw what was happening and ran across the car park, tackled the suspect to the ground and helped an officer restrain him.


Humberside Police posted on social media: "Humberside Police would like to extend their thanks to the member of public who assisted the police and tackled a fleeing suspect outside Tesco express on Flamborough Road, Bridlington last night."
