The team pursued a silver Vauxhaul Astra in a car park in Clown on December 12, which did not have a valid licence plate on its rear.

In the car park, the driver did a loop of the area, reversed the car and rammed into the police vehicle before driving off and then fleeing his vehicle.

There the police found a number of tools and a tool box which have been recovered.
