A police chase through Wymondham has ended with a vehicle crashing into a police car and the occupants fleeing.
Police were called to Tuttles Lane in Wymondham at 12.48pm on Friday, November 10 when the vehicle, a white BMW 1 Series, failed to stop and started to travel at speed towards Norwich Road.
The vehicle collided with a police car and the occupants, believed to be a man and a woman, fled from the scene.
An employee from a garage along Norwich Road said that they heard all of the police cars rushing past the garage.
“We thought it was a bit strange for police cars to be heading from Norwich to Wymondham when there is the police headquarters at the bottom of the road,” she said.
A witness reported seeing the BMW speeding away from Hethersett as she waited at Churchfields and Norwich Road junction.
She said: “I saw the BMW racing through Hethersett being chased by police. Then 20 minutes or so later I saw the scene of the crash outside Waitrose.”
The vehicles were cleared from the road and the road was reopened at around 3pm.
No-one is believed to be injured.
The pursuit came to an end just yards from Norfolk Constablulary Force Headquarters.
Police are looking for a male who was last seen in gardens around Sycamore Avenue, Lime Tree Avenue and Ashleigh Gardens.
