Techie1 + posted a topic in UK Policing NewsMany drivers are breaking the law without even realising https://www.liverpoolecho.co.uk/news/liverpool-news/how-you-could-lose-your-14377497 There's a poll on our Twitter feed on the same subject:
Landrover was driven into Co-operative Food on Manor Drive Upton, and later rammed into a police car that arrived at the scene Ram-raiders attacked a police car with baseball bats after smashing their way into a Wirral supermarket overnight. Officers were called to the Co-operative Food store on Manor Drive, Upton, at 2.35am, when they received reports that a Landrover was being driven at the shutters of the store. After damaging the shutters, the raiders gained access to a cash machine and fled with cash. Police arrived at the scene and a short time later, in nearby Heath Drive, the Landrover deliberately rammed a police car and three or four men got out and attacked it with batons. No officers were injured in the incident and the Landrover was found abandoned nearby in Church Road, Upton, shortly afterwards. It has been recovered for forensic examination by crime scene investigators. Pictures show the aftermath of the raid, with the front of the store left badly damaged and debris lying on the ground near where the shutter had been forced. A brick wall surrounding the car park also appeared to have been damaged in the incident. Detective Inspector Paul Parry said: “This was a particularly determined and violent attack and we are working hard to identify and trace the offenders responsible for this crime. “Forensic examinations of the scene and the Landrover are being carried out and CCTV from the area is being examined. We also believe that a dark coloured Audi and a third car, not further described, were used in the robbery and we would urge anyone who may have seen these cars parked up, or being driven erratically in the area to call us. “Thankfully no officers were injured during this attack, however this incident highlights the danger that police officers can find themselves faced with. This was an audacious attack on a business that provides a valuable service to the local community, compounded by an attack on the officers that attended to deal with incident. These offenders clearly have no consideration for anyone but themselves and I’m sure the community would agree that they need to be brought to justice. “Anyone with any information about this incident is asked to contact Wirral CID on 0151 777 2264 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.” http://www.liverpoolecho.co.uk/news/liverpool-news/ram-raiders-attack-police-car-baseball-9254011#ICID=sharebar_twitter
