Winner of the county's rural cops’ tongue-in-cheek ‘Top Coursing Car League Countdown’ has been crowned.  

Based on the number of vehicles seized relating to rural crime across Cambridgeshire, the county’s Rural Crime Action Team (RCAT) has ranked the winners.  

Over the last week, the RCAT have been releasing daily pictures as the official countdown came to a close on Thursday, March 18.  

They tweeted: “Will the #RustyRavs hold onto the top spot? Will a new contender take the crown or maybe an old favourite?”  

Officers have kept a record and photographs of all of the seized cars, makes and models, to compile the official 2020 to 2021 league.
