Police were led on a chase through Swaffham last night, Sunday March 3, after a car failed to stop.

Officers attempted to stop a car in the town before it fled to a park before the occupants escaped on foot at 11.50pm on North Pickenham Road.

It is believed that three males fled from the vehicle.

The car was found to be full of building equipment which officers said may have been stolen.

In a post on twitter Breckland Police said: “PC 649 and PC1941 were kept busy last night with a vehicle which failed to stop for Police in Swaffham, ending up in a park where the occupants ran off.

“We suspect the contents are stolen but could be wrong.

“If the driver wants to claim his property call 101 and ask for PC649.”
