Police rammed by car after they are called to Woolsthorpe by Colsterworth
A stolen car rammed police in Woolsthorpe by Colsterworth yesterday before making a getaway.
Police were called to Woolsthorpe by Colsterworth at around 8.40 am after they received reports of a suspicious blue Skoda Octavia estate parked in the village.
When they arrived, the Skoda rammed a police car and then drove off.
A thorough search was carried out and it was later recovered in Market Overton after a local resident noticed the car was out of place and called the police.
Enquiries are now underway to trace the offenders.
Ian Martin, community policing inspector for Stamford, Bourne and The Deepings, said: "This is a great example of the local community knowing their areas and working with the police to report suspicious activity."
Insp Martin added that the Skoda was stolen from a burglary in Peterborough over the last few days and was also displaying a stolen registration plate.
He urged residents to call 101, or 999 in an emergency, when things look out of place in the community.
Anyone who saw anything suspicious on Monday in the Woolsthorpe, South Witham and Market Overton areas, should call Lincolnshire Police on 101 and quote Lincolnshire incident 73 of December 17.
