Officers seized three cars on Sunday, March 29 – including a silver Mercedes which was left by its fleeing driver after they spotted the police.

The Fen cops joked “is this essential” after finding a large amount of white powder inside the now seized car wrapped in a sheet of paper.

A spokesman said: “Whilst we continue to deal with Covid-19 related matters officers haven’t stopped working on the day to day matters either!

“Multiple jobs attended where we have safeguarded victims and also has the time to proactively stop a number of vehicles! Three vehicles seized today alone.
