Three people were taken to hospital after a car being pursued by police crashed into a petrol station sign in Cambridgeshire.

A BMW X6 overturned by the Shell garage on the A1, southbound at Buckden, at about 4:30am on Thursday January 25, after failing to stop.

Officers from the road policing unit pursued the vehicle suspected of being “involved in violent burglaries” after receiving reports of a stolen vehicle travelling south from Lincolnshire.

Police said it was believed the suspected burglary offences took place in Nottinghamshire.

A police spokesman said: “At about 5am this morning (January, 25) officers from the Road Policing Unit received reports of a stolen vehicle travelling south on the A1 from Lincolnshire.

“Officers pursued the vehicle, but it failed to stop and was involved in a collision close to Buckden roundabout.

“Three people were injured as a result of the collision and have been taken to hospital.”
