NORTH Wales Police (NWP) have released a remarkable video showing the capture of a wanted man through the use of a drone.

NWP Gwynedd South used a drone camera to apprehend the fugitive on the slopes near Blaenau Ffestiniog, with the footage showing them zoom in on the man as he climbed away from police officers.

They were able to track his progress through the use of the drone camera and the astute senses of a police dog, and the man was shortly arrested (as shown at the end of the video).

Watch as the matter unfolds:
