Police officers in Great Yarmouth were involved in a short chase with a white Kia after the man driving it was spotted using a mobile phone.


The car was spotted at about 7.20pm on Tuesday at Hall Quay and the car sped off as officers approached it, leading to what police called a 'short pursuit' in the Hall Quay/Haven Bridge area.

In a strange twist to the investigation a man then went to the police station saying it was his car and it had been taken while he was at a friend's home and then returned later.

The man was then arrested on the suspicion of drug driving after officers tested him. He was then released.

Police confirmed the man was not the person who was driving the white Kia during the short police chase.
