Officers pursued a man into some woods in the dark when they heard a noise, believed to be the sound of someone breaking wind from a nearby bush.
Police officers in the UK have had a lucky break after a man attempting to hide from them reportedly "broke wind" and revealed his hiding place.
Nottinghamshire Police attended an address in Brookside Walk in Harworth last week in connection with a warrant, and when a man in the residence fled from police they gave chase into nearby woods in the dark.
Officers said they heard a noise, believed to be the sound of someone breaking wind, from a nearby bush. The man was then apprehended by officers.
Another man was then later found hiding in a small space behind a fireplace at the house in Brookside Walk.
Police said a 35-year-old man was arrested after failing to appear at court and a 30-year old man was arrested after he was wanted, both in relation to other matters.
