After a mile-long search across Fenland fields, Kevin the police dog found a motorist - who had crashed his car and fled the scene - hidden in a bush.

The vehicle failed to stop yesterday (Wednesday March 6) at 6.02pm on New Cut, Thorney said a police spokesman.

“The vehicle crashed and the driver – a man in his 20s - decamped,” said a tweet from Bedfordshire Cambridgeshire Hertfordshire Road Policing Unit.

“Kevin tracked the male for around one mile across fields and woods then located him hidden in a bush.

“The man was also wanted for another offence. He was taken to hospital under police supervision.”
