The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - NEWS -

A man ac­cused of im­per­son­at­ing a po­lice of­fi­cer will stand trial in the new year.

Robert David­son (43) of Saf­fron Close, Lit­tle­port, is said to have dressed as a po­lice of­fi­cer, and used flash­ing blue lights on his dash­board.

He was spot­ted by a po­lice of­fi­cer on Bret­ton Way in Peter­bor­ough on July 17 this year.

Yes­ter­day (Wed­nes­day) David­son ap­peared at Peter­bor­ough Mag­is­trates’ Court where he pleaded not guilty to one charge of im­per­son­at­ing a po­lice of­fi­cer.

David­son said he had been wear­ing his work uni­form at the time.

Giles Beau­mont, pros­e­cut­ing, said the po­lice of­fi­cer be­came aware of David­son when he saw him talk­ing to the driver of an Audi at the side of the road. The Seat car David­son had been driv­ing had 06 plates and the blue lights - but po­lice do not use 06 plate ve­hi­cles.

Mag­is­trate Mark Cross ad­journed the hear­ing un­til Jan­uary 10 2019, when the trial will take place at Peter­bor­ough Mag­is­trates’ Court. The trial is ex­pected to last two hours. David­son was granted un­con­di­tional bail un­til the trial date.
