A police car was rammed during a pursuit in King’s Lynn.

A Blue VW Golf failed to stop for officers who saw it go through a red light.

A stinger was deployed but the Golf avoided it by mounting a bank.

The driver then rammed a police car, causing minor damage to both vehicles.

A man was arrested after the car became stuck in a field and is still in custody. No-one was injured in the incident.

One officer tweeted: “Vehicle failed to stop for officers this morning in #Kingslynn. The pursuit continued into the Terrington area where the subject vehicle rammed the Police car by reversing into it. The offender decamped a short distance away and was detained by officers #arrested #teamwork #PC689.”
