TWO members South Yorkshire Police's staff have been arrested on suspicion of stealing the force helicopter's logbook.

It's understood one of those arrested is a police officer and the other a member of staff. Both have been released on bail.

The helicopter has not been used for five months due to mechanical faults.

Earlier this month, the force said it needed to recreate the aircraft's logbook which had "gone missing".

In a statement, South Yorkshire Police said the arrests were "part of an ongoing criminal investigation".
