Three Arrested On M25

Three people have been bailed following reports that a non-police car was attempting to pull over motorists on the M25.

Drivers called Surrey police on Tuesday evening to say a silver Ford Mondeo equipped with blue flashing lights was trying to get other drivers to pull over on the clockwise section at Leatherhead.

Officers stopped a vehicle matching the description given near junction 11 of the M25 shortly before 8.50pm.

The three - a 23-year-old woman, from Chelmsford, Essex, a 23-year-old man, from Chelmsford and a 16-year-old girl, from Reading - were jointly arrested on suspicion of going equipped for theft, impersonating a police officer and using a vehicle purporting to be an emergency services vehicle.

They have been released on bail until January 9.

Officers have spoken to a number of people at the scene but are keen to speak to anyone else who was either pulled over or had any contact with this vehicle or its occupants.
