South Wales police are reviewing footage which appears to show a police vehicle following an e-bike in Cardiff – shortly before a crash which left two teenage boys dead.

The force said the CCTV film was being “recovered as part of the investigation” – while insisting there had been no vehicles on the road “when the collision occurred”.

Social media posts about a police chase sparked several hours of rioting in the Ely area well into the night
