THE police helicopter was scrambled to locate men who had broken into a commercial unit in Hawksworth Industrial Estate last night.

Officers responded to reports of a break-in at a Cemex, a ready-mixed concrete trader, at around 11.20pm and ground officers managed to locate two of the men, while the helicopter crew pinpointed another.

The three men, aged 20, 30 and 36 and all from Lancashire, were arrested on suspicion of commerical burglary and taken to Gablecross police station for questioning.

A Wiltshire Police spokesman said: "Three men have been arrested on suspicion of commercal burglary after the helicopter was scrambled to assit officers trace the suspects.

"The men are still in custody."
