It's been a harrowing week on Lancashire’s roads.
On Saturday an officer had his foot run over on the hardshoulder of the M55 before the driver tore off and lead police on a chase to Preston, reaching speeds of up to 140mph.
Officers have also been called to deal attend a fatal bus crash in Fulwood, have stopped an abnormal load travelling through the county, recovered weapons from a group in a car, and have stopped a host of drug and drink-drivers.

A van in Blackpool just didn’t look right to a patrolling police sergeant.
When the vehicle was stopped, the driver tested positive for drugs, had no licence or insurance, the vehicle was on cloned plates, there were more people than seats and weapons were found on board.
All of the occupants were arrested, with one wanted by a neighbouring force. Photo: Lancashire Police
