THE South Yorkshire Police helicopter has been called out over Doncaster to help search for a stolen car.

The police’s air team was called out shortly after 1pm on Sunday, to help track down a missing Mercedes Sprinter, which was found abandoned shortly after.

The team was also involved in a precautionary sweep over Bawtry and Tickhill on Friday night from 11pm, but found no major issues in the area.

South Yorkshire’s dedicated force helicopter is under threat as the Government looks to set up regional police chopper teams.
