A man caught travelling down the motorway on blue lights has been arrested on suspicion of impersonating a police officer.
The silver vehicle was stopped by specialist roads policing officers from the Central Motorway Police Group (CMPG) on Junction 15 of the M6 at around 8.30am this morning.
The driver, said to be from Worcester, had a windscreen-mounted blue light set and two false, unconnected, aerials attached to the top of his vehicle.
In a tweet posted on Twitter, the CMPG accused the driver of trying to “dupe the public into thinking it was a emergency services vehicle”.
A 60-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of impersonating a police officer following the stop near Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire.
He has since been released under investigation pending further enquiries, police said.
