A Swedish fugitive has been arrested in Marbella after a dangerous car chase which left five police officers injured .

National Police officers stopped a car driven by a man at a security checkpoint - part of the so-called Marbella Plan which was sparked after a recent spate of shootings in the area - about 1pm on Monday 3 June in Avenida Alfonso de Hohenlohe.

But the man hit the accelerator and fled the scene, sparking a police pursuit. During his escape, the wanted man caused damage to three cars, a police patrol car and a bus, as well as to a traffic light and several road signs. Five National Police officers were injured during the incident, but not seriously.
