Cops on a roll as van es­capes

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

A RUN­AWAY po­lice van was wrecked af­ter it ploughed into a parked car.

The ac­ci­dent hap­pened af­ter cops were called to deal with a pub rum­pus.

As of­fi­cers left the van, it rolled down a hill and plunged into a black Vaux­hall Corsa.

The fe­male of­fi­cer, who had been driv­ing the van, sus­tained mi­nor in­juries as she tried bring­ing it to a stop.

No-one else was hurt in the ac­ci­dent which came af­ter cops were sum­moned to the Weather­spoons pub in Kendal, Cum­bria.

A spokesman added: “A su­per­vis­ing of­fi­cer went to the scene and a full probe is un­der­way.”

It’s not the first time a Cum­bria Po­lice ve­hi­cle has gone off on its own. In Au­gust 2009, a cop van rolled down Crag Brow, Bow­ness, and crashed into a Ford Fi­esta as cops in­ves­ti­gated an as­sault.
