Police were called to Tuttles Lane in Wymondham at 12.48pm on Friday, November 10 when the vehicle, a white BMW 1 Series, failed to stop and started to travel at speed towards Norwich Road.

The vehicle collided with a police car and the occupants, believed to be a man and a woman, fled from the scene.

An employee from a garage along Norwich Road said that they heard all of the police cars rushing past the garage.

'We thought it was a bit strange for police cars to be heading from Norwich to Wymondham when there is the police headquarters at the bottom of the road,' she said.
