Detectives investigating the police pursuit with a dumper truck in the county on Monday (21 July) are appealing for witnesses to come forward.
Three police cars were damaged during the incident which happened on Monday afternoon (21 July) after police received reports of a truck being driven dangerously in Cringleford.

Officers located the 30-tonne dumper truck at the Thickthorn roundabout and the pursuit continued on the A11 and A134 eventually ending in Brandon at about 2.30pm when a 39-year-old man was arrested in connection with the incident.

The man was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder, dangerous driving, taking a vehicle without consent, failing to stop for police, driving under the influence of drugs and possession of a Class A drug.

He was questioned by officers at Wymondham Police Investigation Centre and has been released on bail while enquiries continue until Monday 28 September.

During the incident three police cars were damaged; a Ford Focus and Volvo have been written off while a BMW X5 suffered minor damage and will be repaired. The cost of the damage is estimated to be more than £50,000.

Police are making a direct appeal to members of the public who witnessed the incident.

Investigating officer, Detective Constable Andy Vinsen, from Norwich CID, said: “We’re keen to hear from anyone who may have witnessed this incident and who hasn’t already spoken with officers.

“In particular, we want to trace two motorists who were driving in the wooded area between Methwold and Mundford and at about 1.45pm on Monday who witnessed the damage of a BMW X5 marked police car.

“These were a silver Ford Fiesta which was being driven by an elderly woman and a metallic blue Ford Focus driven by a middle-aged woman.”

The truck was taken from a site in Spixworth and officers are keen to hear from anyone who may have seen the vehicle being driven from here to Cringleford.

Anyone with information should contact DC Vinsen at Norwich CID on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

Heartwarming cops share chips with man who hasn’t eaten for days

Published

on

Two police officers this evening shared their chips with a man they found on the motorway who hasn’t eaten food in days.

The caring cops showed compassion and humanity when they could have just nicked the lad and sent him off to the cells.

But instead of taking him straight into police custody they stopped off for some chips.

Showing a truly caring side of British traffic cops who often don’t get the best press.

“The cops from the Leicestershire road policing unit tweeted that they had found on motorway suspected to be an illegal immigrant into the UK.

“He’s not eaten for days and we’ve not eaten for hours, so we’ve all shared some fine English cuisine …… a bag of chips!! 👍🏻 🍟”

These truly caring officers have shown this evening that police officers have hearts and they do care about people.

Policing is not always about crime, it’s the small acts of human kindness that go a long way.

We praise these officers for their genuine out of kindness out of their own pocket.

Helen tweeted “I know you’ll probably get people complain but. Compassion, humanity and care are great qualities.”

UK Cop Humour tweeted “Fab stuff and whilst we’re on the topic of spuds: why do potatoes make good detectives? Because they keep their eyes peeled.”

ElAine tweeted “I know some people’s heads will explode at this but well done for your compassion.”

Simply policing at it’s best. What ever your views you have to admit this is compassion and humility at it’s best.

These cops truly deserve to be recognised for great policing work.

Not every job needs to be a tick box, just because it’s a suspected illegal immigrant doesn’t mean they should be treat any different.

Top job with excellent policing skills, that will have ensured this suspect didn’t cause any problems for the officers.

Full up on chips, the officers then processes this man through custody and will refer to the home office immigration services.
