Police are appealing for witnesses to an incident of dangerous driving that took place in the Newmarket area.

It happened on the A14 westbound on Saturday 12 October at about 9.15pm.

Officers had reason to make a request for the driver of a black VW golf to stop for police on the A14 at Newmarket. After failing to do so the vehicle was pursued into Cambridgeshire. The pursuit ended at the junction of the A11 at Fulbourn where the vehicle collided at low spend with a crash barrier. No-one was hurt in the incident.

A quantity of suspected class A and B drugs were recovered from the vehicle as was a suspected pepper spray device.

A 22 year old man was arrested at the scene on suspicion of failing a drug drive test, dangerous driving,  possession of class A and B drugs, failing to stop for police and possession of a firearm. He was taken to Bury St Edmunds Police Investigation Centre for questioning and subsequently released under investigation pending further enquiries.

Anyone who witnessed the incident, saw the manner of driving of the vehicle, or who may have any dash cam footage of the incident should contact police, quoting crime reference 37/62102/19
