A THIEF accused of stealing fuel from Cross Hills filling station was caught on camera, police say.

North Yorkshire Police traffic cop Andrew Ingram posted on Twitter last night (Thursday) that despite a pursuit when the car made off, he was confident he would 'see them again'.

He wrote: "Well, flying start to the shift tonight. Car doing a make-off from #Coopfuelstation #Crosshills and then driver stopped ran off and his mates then jumped in and drove off. Pursued to #keighley where lost due to its driving. "Can run but we have some good footage. #seeyousoon."

No footage has been released yet.
