A driver has been arrested on suspicion of driving whilst disqualified and being in possession of an offensive weapon after being stopped on the A11.
Police used pre-emptive tactics to avoid a pursuit as they stopped a Mercedes E220 on the dual carriageway near Wymondham on Saturday. The suspected disqualified motorist was also found to have no insurance and the car was seized.
The arrest was one of a series of stops as central area police in Norfolk worked with Norfolk and Suffolk road traffic patrols targeting speeding drivers.
A Ford focus was also seized after being stopped for travelling too fast and the driver was found to have forgot to insure it.
Responding to the operations Sgt Chris Harris, of Norfolk & Suffolk Roads & Armed Policing Team, tweeted: “Great team work”.
