The blue Volkswagen Golf was seen near Morrisons supermarket on Clipbush Lane at 7.30pm.

Witnesses should contact Fakeham police station on 101.

  • That magical figure again, frequently used but rarely factual. How do the Police know the vehicle was doing over 100mph ? Has a member of the public got hold of a speed gun, or, as suspected when asked, they guess and quote over 100mph.
