However, the driver does not want to go willingly, and continues to drive as PC Lovatt opens the driver’s door.

The series, presented by Jamie Theakston and billed by Channel Five as ‘Britain’s longest running and most watched police show’, has regularly featured officers from Derbyshire Roads Policing Unit dealing with major incidents on the county’s busiest roads.

The show follows the day-to-day role of a traffic officer and the incidents they come across.
