A wanted man managed to evade police capture by escaping through a DIY tunnel under his floorboards.
The crafty fugitive slipped past officers after refusing to answer the door in Leeds, West Yorkshire, and remains at large.
West Yorkshire Police jokingly tweeted ‘1-0 to him but we will arrange a rematch soon’.
It is not known why they wanted to speak to the man.
