Police were called to a possible kidnap near Warwick last night (Saturday) - but it turned out to be just a family row.

A member of the public reported seeing suspects fighting on the hard shoulder of the M40 at Warwick services motorway and one man force the other into a Blue Porshe and drive off.

Police eventually stopped the vehicle near junction 9 of M40 with help from officers from Thames Valley Police.
