The men, aged 24, 26 and 30, were detained after the stolen vehicle collided with a Range Rover in the Mill Street area of the town on Thursday at about 6.30pm.

Minor injuries were caused to the female driver of the 4x4.

The vehicle had been stolen in a 'creeper' burglary at a house in the Acres Road area of Craigavon, Co Armagh the previous day.

Some time between 8.15pm and 9pm on Wednesday, an intruder broke into the property, stole the car's keys and made off in it.

All three men have been arrested on suspicion of burglary and a number of driving offences.

They are currently assisting police with their enquiries.
