A man has been arrested on suspicion of stealing £200 worth of chocolate bars.

Police said the man was found with the chocolates, which included an enormous stash of Twirl bars, after being chased by an officer in Ashton Hurst, Greater Manchester.

The suspect had been spotted "making off" from a shop in Hollins Road, Oldham, as officers were on their way to their annual Christmas dinner with the local community, Greater Manchester Police said.

After detaining the man, police also discovered that he was carrying a kitchen knife and was wanted for failing to appear at court.
