Police in Stevenage swooped this afternoon to arrest a motorist on suspicion of dangerous driving and failing to stop while unfit through drugs.

The driver was also suspected of lacking a valid MOT for the blue hatchback – which had to be recovered after officers went to move it, only to find it wouldn’t start.

A unit spokesman tweeted a picture of the scene with the words: “This little one failed to stop in Stevenage. Driver arrested – drug drive, fail to stop, dangerous driving and no MOT.”

A further tweet added: “When we went to move it, it wouldn’t start so had to get it recovered.”

A 22-year-old man from Datchworth has been bailed until April 15.

Anyone with information can call police on the non-emergency number 101, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or crimestoppers-uk.org.
