A police car was rammed after officers tried to stop a car in Chatteris in the early of Saturday morning, and the driver made off on foot.

And in a separate incident in March on Saturday evening, another driver abandoned his vehicle after being involved in a collision near the City Road car park.

The police have appealed for information about the drivers involved in both incidents.

At Chatteris, police officers had been carrying out routine patrols on Friday night as part of the work to enforce a dispersal order.

A police spokesman said: “While on patrol, officers attempted to stop a Ford Mondeo in the early hours of Saturday at the A141 in Chatteris.
