Police car rammed

We are appealing for witnesses or information after a police car was rammed last night.

The force control room received a report of two suspicious vehicles, one driving without lights in Gamlingay at about 3am today (Sunday). Officers attended the scene when a Teleporter and a cream Mini Clubman was heading along Long Lane.

The Teleporter drove towards a police car and rammed it into a side road. The driver made off into the Mini before turning into Church Road and headed towards Potton. The area was searched and the Teleporter has been recovered which is now being examined by police. Both officers suffered minor injuries. Sergeant Paul Rogerson said: “I would like to hear from anyone who was in the area and maybe saw the police car being rammed or saw the vehicles leaving the scene. “Both officers’ welfare is in hand and neither required medical treatment. “I believe these vehicles were due to commit a ram raid before officers were alerted. Therefore, I’d ask the residents in the surrounding villages to remain vigilant and report anything suspicious to police. “Anyone with information should call Sgt Rogerson on 101 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
