FOUR police officers have raised almost £5,000 for charity by driving a unique modified car from Attleborough to Barcelona.

The four officers who took part in the road trip were Sergeant Mark Glister, PC Martin Fallon, PC Pete Warby and PCSO Gary Szabo.

All four have worked in Attleborough, and decided to raise money for local charities.

For the journey they bought a Rover estate and painted it to look like an American police car, calling it the “hot fuzz 4 kidz car”.

After setting off from Attleborough, the team drove through France, Belgium, Luxembourg, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, Monaco and finally arrived in Barcelona after 4 days and 7 hours.

The journey raised £4629.60 for the team's two chosen charities, East Anglia's Childrens' Hospices and Quidenham and Chapel Road School.
