A slow-witted crime suspect who abandoned his pushbike was arrested after a police officer used it to chase him down.

The unnamed officer was praised by colleagues on Twitter after a West Midlands Police response team posted a video of the arrest in Birmingham.

The Birmingham East Response team's account said the man, believed to have damaged a shop front, made off on foot after seeing a police car.

Chief Superintedent Chris Todd, director of intelligence at West Midlands Police, messaged the response unit to compliment them on "great work."

"Everyone's got the #TourdeFrance2018 bug!" he tweeted.
