A woman was asked to step out of her car by man she thought was a police officer after the car he was driving, which had blue flashing lights, pulled up behind her on a quiet country road near a Norfolk village.
At 7.30pm on Friday police received a call about a suspicious incident in the East Harling area. A female driver had allowed a car with blue flashing lights, which she believed was a police vehicle, to pass her on the road.
But instead the vehicle pulled up behind her and the man got out of the car. He then approached the woman's vehicle from the passenger side and asked her to step out of the car.
The woman declined but said she would do once she had driven into the centre of East Harling as it was well-lit. But when she proceeded to the village the car turned off. She then informed the police.
The car was described as small and of a dark colour.

A spokesperson for Norfolk Constabulary said the force told the driver to call them if she saw the car again and if a similar incident happened in the future to ask for an officer's warrant card and then call 101 to confirm their identity.
