RPU officers were out in Peterborough when their ANPR (automatic number plate recognition) pinged for a vehicle with no insurance.

They directed the vehicle to stop but it didn't and made off.

Officers located it parked up on a driveway in Richmond Avenue, Walton, with its number plates removed in a bid to hide it from police.
