A cricket match had to be halted when police chased suspected car thieves across a pitch.
Stunned players stood aside while police officers sprinted across the outfield as hundreds of spectators looked on.
Umpires halted the game between Radyr and the Marylebone Cricket Club while the police took chase.
It restarted 10 minutes later when the officers returned with 5 young men in handcuffs.
The suspected thieves are accused of stealing a BMW and driving it through farmland.

Safeguarding of Children (17 and under) in Cricket
ECB are committed to ensure that all children who take part in cricket have a safe positive and enjoyable experience, whatever their level of involvement. The welfare of children who play cricket is paramount and everyone has a role to play in in ensuring they are safe from abuse of any kind.
Any individual (includes umpires) organisation, club or county boards have a duty of care to ensure the safety and welfare of any child involved in cricket, to safeguard and protect them from reasonably foreseeable forms of harm.
In my role of County Welfare Officer for the Yorkshire Cricket Board I regularly receive complaints from young people (under 18), parents and spectators that incidents of verbal bullying take place during senior cricket matches and no action is taken by officials against the offending player. Bullying can be defined as deliberate hurtful behaviour and can be physical, verbal and emotional. Bullying of any kind is unacceptable and umpires should not allow this type of behaviour to occur against young people during cricket matches. In matches that young players are involved in, during a pre-match talk with captains, umpires should be advising them that any bullying during the game will not be tolerated. Should incidents occur then a quiet word with the offending player and the captain will normally have the desired outcome. However should unacceptable behaviour continue then umpires should be considering reporting the matter to their league management.
We all have a duty to provide a safe and welcoming environment tailored to the needs and requirements of young people involved in cricket. Bullying is unacceptable and should play no part in the game of cricket.
