Lorry thieves thwarted.
The crooks used an oxyacetylene torch to break into a haulage yard on Lower Quarry Road, Bradley, just after midnight on Saturday.
They were spotted by a member of the public as they made their getaway in the three HGVs.
Patrol cars and a police helicopter were used to track them as they made their way along Cooper Bridge Road and Wakefield Road before getting on to the M62 eastbound.
A rolling road block was used to stop the lorries just after the motorway's Loft-house junction.
Three men from the Castleford and Pontefract areas were arrested and charged with theft of motor vehicles. They have been released on bail.
