Two men were arrested after being hunted down by a police dog.

In the early hours of Sunday morning, police in Rossendale were on patrol in Bacup when they came across a suspicious vehicle.

Upon noticing the officers, the men in the car jumped out and tried to run from police.

However, PD Zorro, pictured, was deployed and managed to detain the driver before hunting down and catching the passenger not long after.
