A police helicopter and dog teams were called to the area to try and find them.

Police cars with dog units were seen opposite Budgens in Trinity Mead and the helicopter was hovering over Waitrose and the Rosebird Centre.

However, this morning, police said nobody had been found in the search.

A spokesperson for the National Police Air Support said it costs approximately £700 per hour to deploy the helicopter, taking into account fuel and maintenance.

The Vauxhall Insignia was taken away by police, who don't believe at this stage that it was stolen.

A number of Herald Facebook readers say they saw the car earlier, driving erratically on the Birmingham Road.

The driver of the van had to be taken by ambulance to Warwick Hospital after the crash to be checked over as a precaution.

Any witnesses who can help identify the males is asked to call police on non-emergency number 101 quoting incident 245 of 19th February.
