A disqualified motorist who was driving without insurance tried to avoid police when he saw a marked force car coming towards him.

The driver of the Audi vehicle reacted to the sight of the blue and yellow Suffolk Constabulary vehicle by turning into the next side road when the vehicle started to approach him in Stowmarket.

Officers prevented him from getting away by meeting him at the other end of the road.

They then seized the vehicle, with officers from Norfolk and Suffolk Roads and Firearms Policing Team Tweeting: “The driver of this vehicle in the @PoliceStow area was keen to avoid Police when he saw the marked vehicle coming towards him.

“He reacted by turning into the next side road. We met him at the other end of that road. He is disqualified and uninsured #Seized.”
