Cops revealed the lorry had been reported stolen before the chase.

A spokesman said: “It was travelling along Common Lane, towards Grimethorpe, when an officer in a marked patrol car, travelling in the opposite direction, turned around to follow the vehicle.”

The newly-built house suffered severe damage with beds and other household items hanging from the gable end.

Witnesses said no-one was in the semi-detached home, which had only been built in the last six months, at the time.

The incident, which happened at around 1.40pm on Friday, has been referred to the Independent Office for Police Conduct.
