THREE people are in custody after a driver failed to stop after hitting a parked car.

According to a tweet which was posted this morning (October 17) by OPU Worcestershire, it suggests the three offenders cloned an Astra.

Cloning a vehicle is when a criminal copies the identity of another vehicle by stealing or duplicating their registration plates.

The tweet said: “This cloned Astra failed to stop for @NWorcsCops - a short pursuit by us where the Sgt surprised us all with a stinger.

“The vehicle struck a parked car. Three persons in custody for going equipped to steal.”
