Armed police hunting a gunman in a stolen van who left a 70-mile trail of terror had to shut a motorway for two hours yesterday.

A 29-year-old man from Huddersfield, West Yorkshire was eventually arrested after giving himself up to officers on the M6 in Cumbria. He was being questioned at Kendal police station last night.

The van was driven north out of Manchester on the southbound carriageway of the M6 and hit two other vehicles. No one was hurt.
