‘Old fashioned policing’ helps recover stolen car
Local police were able to stop the vehicle in Great Yarmouth after it evaded them in Lowestoft.
The black Volkswagen was reported stolen in Surrey and at around 8.40am this morning, police constable, Callum Walchester, spotted it on patrol on the A47 in Lowestoft.
While turning around in traffic the car evaded PC Walchester, who subsequently chose to trust his gut instinct and drive in the direction of Great Yarmouth – where he believed the vehicle would be heading.

Lights, camera, action! Gorleston gears up for Boyle beach concert
Today is the day 5,000 people will make their big screen debut as Oscar-winning director Danny Boyle shoots a rooftop concert scene on Gorleston beach.
While there are only 5,000 spaces available, tickets have been oversubscribed to allow for no-shows, so entry for ticket-holders will be granted on a first come first serve basis.
For those not lucky enough to get a place on the beach, Gorleston’s famous clifftops should provide an alternative ideal vantage point from which to watch the action unfold below with an ice cream.
The majority of ticket-holders travelling from outside the town have park and ride tickets and should report to Bluebell Meadow in Bradwell.
However, for those travelling by public transport, buses X1 and X11 run to the town from the direction of Lowestoft and Great Yarmouth.
Alternatively, visitors can catch the train to Great Yarmouth and then catch one of the local First buses.
