OFFICERS are appealing for information after a police officer was driven at while on duty.

On March 16 at around 10.17am, an officer became aware of a grey Ford Mondeo on High Street, Goldthorpe.

On his motorbike, the officer followed t he driver and requested the driver to stop in the Aldi car park on Barnsley Road.

However, the driver failed to stop and used his car to reverse towards the officer.

Operation support superintendent, Paul McCurry, said: “Luckily the officer was able to manoeuvre his bike between the safety bollards outside the store, avoiding injury.

“The Mondeo then drove away towards Hollygrove roundabout and fled the scene.

“Checks into the vehicle have since identified that the vehicle is cloned and could be stolen.

“This type of behaviour is not acceptable, our officers come to work to serve their communities, not to be driven at and injured.

“Those involved in criminality have no respect for the law and no respect for officers, we are all someone’s loved one and deserve to go home to our families at the end of each shift.”

Officers are now appealing for information about the driver. The registration displayed on the vehicle is BF58 OLJ.

Anyone with information is asked to call 101 and quote incident number 231 of March 16.
