Two people have been arrested after a police pursuit this afternoon.

A police spokeswoman confirmed in a statement officers followed a stolen vehicle which did a u-turn at speed on Roscommon Rd, in South Auckland, just before 1.30pm.

"The driver fled along Roscommon Rd, Wiri Station Rd, and off at Coronation Rd, where the pursuit was abandoned within several minutes. Several minutes after that, the vehicle crashed in Mangere Town Centre on Bader Dr off-ramp into the barrier.

"Two people are in custody and are expected to face a range of charges."
