Several Geneva police cars gave chase and crossed the border into France. The car span out on a roundabout in St Julien-en-Genevois.

Geneva police arrested 5 of the 6 occupants – the other who’d ran off was later caught by French police.

Both police forces are asking for witnesses, including from a cyclist who narrowly escaped being hit by the fleeing car during the chase.
