Four on the run after police stop vehicle

Police are hunting for four people, believed to be men, after their vehicle was stopped on a Suffolk road last night.

All four fled after police stopped a 4x4 vehicle towing a trailer carring four quad bikes on the B1112 road between Icklingham and Mildenhall at about 10.20pm.

Two of the four made off on foot when police pulled them over and unhitched the trailer from the 4x4. The other two got back into their vehicle and also made off from the scene. The vehicle was later found abandoned in Mildenhall Woods nearby.

The police helicopter, which was on exercise nearby, was called in to search for the men but without success.

Last night, a spokesman for Suffolk Police said that subsequent inquiries had revealed that the trailer and the quad bikes had been stolen.
