A Police Scotland Air Unit was needed to aid road cops during a road chase in Dumbarton.

The helicopter crew used a thermal camera to locate the suspect hiding in bushes following a short vehicle pursuit through the area.

The incident - which involved a stolen car with fake plates - took place at around 2.50pm on Thursday, October 19.
