Four arrested following fail-to-stop incident

Four people have been arrested following a fail-to-stop incident near Bury St Edmunds.

At approximately 6.50pm yesterday, Tuesday, August 6, officers had cause to request a Nissan Almera to stop on the westbound A14, near junction 41 for Risby, but it failed to do so.

The Nissan Almera was pursued by police, with the suspect vehicle making several attempts to evade officers by leaving and rejoining the dual carriageway to travel in the opposite direction, before it subsequently collided with an HGV lorry near junction 43 for Bury St Edmunds where it came to a stop.

The occupants of the suspect vehicle decamped and fled the scene on foot. The driver of the lorry was not injured during the incident.

Four individuals travelling in a Ford Transit van were later arrested on the A10 in Buntingford by officers from Hertfordshire Police in relation to the fail-to-stop incident.

A 19 year-old man from Watford, an 18-year-old man from east London, a 17-year-old boy from Hemel Hempstead and a 21-year-old man from Hemel Hempstead were all arrested on suspicion of theft.

All four people were brought to Bury St Edmunds Police Investigation Centre for questioning by detectives and remain in custody at this time.
