An uninsured driver who narrowly missed a collision with a police officer has been reported for a number of driving offences.  

The grey Renault Megane driver reportedly pulled out in front of a Cambridgeshire Constabulary specials officer in Ely on Wednesday (January 6).  

Officers ran the car’s number plate through the police system which revealed the car had no insurance – so police pulled the driver over.  

A spokesperson for Cambridgeshire Police said: “One of our Specials was in Ely yesterday when this vehicle pulled out in front without checking.
