Watch: Forklift taken on joyride through Auckland's main shopping street

A stunned onlooker thought a forklift being taken on a late-night joyride was being used for work - until he noticed it was being chased by fleet-footed police. A 17-year-old youth has been arrested overnight after allegedly stealing a forklift and driving it up Auckland's Queen St. Police say the teenager stole the forklift from a construction yard in central Auckland and then travelled the wrong way down Darby St and onto Queen St where police saw him and told him to stop.
