A man has been arrested after losing control of his vehicle and crashing into a lamp post in Peterborough this week.
Cambridgeshire Police attended the incident in Gunthorpe Ridings on the evening of the bank holiday Monday August 29 and arrested a man in his 20s, who ran up the kerb before colliding with a lamp post and crashing through a resident’s fence. However, he was released without charge and no further action will be taken.
It was just one of the incidents covered by the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire (BCH) Traffic Police Unit this week – the police unit that patrols the roads of Peterborough.
Other incidents include the driver of a stolen vehicle that failed to stop for police and crashed less than a minute later. The driver was arrested after being uninsured and testing positive for cocaine.
