Driver speeds away from Midlands checkpoint and hides on farm
Gardaí in the midlands were forced to give chase to a car that fled a checkpoint and drove to a rural farm.
An Offaly Roads Policing Unit was out and about on Saturday when a car carrying three males turned away from a checkpoint.
ESB has revealed that it intends to develop a huge battery energy storage facility in Longford on the site of the former Lough Ree power plant in Lanesboro which it intends to demolish.
Gardaí said the "driver drove away at speed and they hid in rural farmyard."
"The area was searched and vehicle seized."
Three men were arrested with prosecutions pending, according to gardaí.
