A PYMOOR farming family pursued two men off their property last night after a burglary.
Liz Marshall, co-owner of Mount Pleasant Farm, said her husband Glenn had gone to shut up his flock of ducks for the evening, just after midnight, when he heard voices and the sound of footsteps across the field.
Two men had been disturbed made off in a getaway vehicle. They were pursued by Mr Marshall and his brother Ross, whilst police were called. Officers on patrol picked up the car in Wisbech, which failed to stop and was pursued by the police helicopter and a dog unit.
A 17-year-old boy and a 26-year-old man were finally arrested at Kirkham's Lane, near Elm, and taken to Wisbech police station, where they are still in custody.
"I expect my husband will be up every night to see if they come back," added Mrs Marshall. Two generations of her family live at the Main Street farm, which provides their livelihood, but has often proved a target for burglars.
More than 300 ducks were killed by intruders when Mount Pleasant Farm was broken into last year.
