I spotted a silver Fiesta with red and blue flashing lights in the front grille rushing to attend an accident on the A1 near Sedgefield on Thursday morning.

So that'll be the Co. Durham police then I take it?
Probably.

It was heading north closely followed behind a pair of marked Beemers between the Bradbury and Bowburn junctions.

Navy blue Ford Galaxy (02), Maroon Ford Galaxy (02), Silver Skoda (07), also a Volvo not sure of year mainly used on A55. Not that I look out for them :cheese: .

Sneaky used to be when they had a beat up old Ford van, looked like it belonged to a cowboy builder.

I'm sure it would be cheaper to have unmarked coppers on the streets looking out for real criminals (bring on the flames)

in manchester city centre they've been using an 03-plate vauxhall whatever-they're-called (the mid size mpv thing), and even as recently as last year they had an old s-plate golf tdi :tut:

last week i saw them in a brand new silver 5 series

i know manchester's not in the north east btw :p



edit: zafira, that's the bugger
