It's good to know my Coppers Nose is still working after 13 years of sniffing out suspicious people.

I was helping out with Operation Trivium in Stratford yesterday as it was being organised and run by local Officers from across Shipston, Alcester, Stratford and Wellesbourne. ...


At 10am I spotted a suspicious male driving and called in other units to help. The Driver failed to stop which resulted in a high speed pursuit from Stratford to Coventry. With help from the helicopter, other Officers and a member of public the Driver was detained and arrested in Woodway Lane, Coventry.
