This dramatic video shows the moment police wrestled a man from a car at a busy Burnley junction.

Storage Hunters star Jesse McClure can be heard saying “Oh my gosh, well that’s crazy” as he films the incident, which took place at the junction of Rossendale Road and Accrington Road at around 1pm.

Officers, assisted by a police dog, drag the man from the car and apprehend him in the middle of the junction as shocked motorists look on.

Police arrested a 39-year-old and 42-year-old man on suspicion of burglary with intent to steal. It is believed the car was among the items stolen.

Lancashire Police officers made the arrest following a tip-off from Greater Manchester Police.

The two men are currently in custody.
