One of Cambridgeshire's oddest traditions gets under way this morning...
Police Officer Run Over
Two men have been charged with GBH after a police officer had a taxi reverse into him in Milton Keynes in the early hours of New Year's Day.
The officer ended up badly injured after being pinned against his patrol car on the Hodge Lea estate. It happened at 3.30am on Sunday 1 January 2012.
The officer and colleagues had been investigating the theft of a taxi stolen from Stony Stratford an hour earlier. There had been reports a taxi driver had been forced out of his car by a group of two men and two women who then drove away from the scene.
The stolen vehicle was discovered in Hodge Lea Lane, where it reversed unexpectedly. After pinning one of the police officers to their patrol car, the vehicle was later discovered in Grangers Croft, Hodge Lea, Milton Keynes.
Ashley Barber, 29, from Carron Court, Bletchley, Milton Keynes and Dale Whitside, 31, from Pinders Croft, Greenleys, Milton Keynes have both been charged with grievous bodily harm and were due to appear at Milton Keynes Magistrates' Court on Tuesday 3 January.
They have also been charged with the theft of a taxi from High Street, Stony Stratford. Barber has also been charged with aggravated vehicle-taking as a passenger, while Whiteside has been charged with aggravated vehicle-taking as a driver.
Two women arrested, aged 24 and 27, have been released on bail and told to report back to police on 20 February 2012. A 39 year old man arrested has been released without charge.
