Officers responded to calls from locals after spotting flashlights in an empty building in Kloten. When the police arrived, a French registered car raced off. One officer had to jump to safety.

Another fired at the car – but it continued to escape, colliding with another vehicle on the way.

The car was eventually stopped in Glattbrug and three people – aged between 19 and 38 – were arrested. None lived in Switzerland.

No one was hurt in the incident and Zurich police are asking for any witnesses to come forward.
