Update: Incident on Horns Bridge roundabout

More details have been released about an incident on a roundabout in the centre of Chesterfield.

Three police cars and a van could be seen on the A61 at the junction of the Horn Bridge roundabout at around 2pm yesterday (Thursday).

Derbyshire Police were in pursuit of a grey Vauxhall Vectra which collided with the police car, causing minor damage.

The female driver was taken away in a police car. The car was seized by police and, following checks, the driver was handed a prohibition notice because the car had a loose battery.

A spokesman for Derbyshire Police said: “Police intercepted a car at Horns Bridge at 2pm. Officers stopped a car because we had reason to believe that people inside had drugs.”

It was today confirmed that no drugs were found and no arrests were made.
