This is the moment four robbers tried to outrun the police in after a botched robbery on a branch of Waitrose in Kenilworth.

The gang had tried to use various implements, including a hydraulic cutter, a circular saw, crowbars and an angle grinder. But after failing to stealing anything the men then made off in a stolen Audi RS7.

In the two minute video the police pursue a car reaching speeds of 150mph as they try to keep up as the men tear along the road.

For a moment it appears that the vehicle is lost however, unknown to the thieves, the police are also tracking them from by air. Footage from a helicopter shows the pursuit continuing but there is a problem that the police are running low on fuel and could lose the men.

Luckily, the car pulls into a road where the men get out and are quickly apprehended by officers.

The men were sentenced to 12 years in jail by Birmingham Crown Court.

Only last week a new survey revealed that people within "easy reach" of a Waitrose could increase the value of their homes by up to 12 per cent.

Research by Lloyds Bank found that a property located near a Waitrose is around £38,931 more compared to others in the surrounding area.
