Garden wall collides with joyride cops

Two police officers stop suspected drink-driver then 'CRASH his high-powered sports car after taking it for JOYRIDE'

Two police officers have been suspended from driving duties after they stopped a suspected drink driver then wrote-off his sports car by crashing through a garden wall.

The pair climbed into the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution in Hale, Greater Manchester, while waiting for a recovery truck.

But the officers ended up ploughing the turbo-charged, four-wheel drive car into the gardens of two luxury homes, rolling it on to its side.

The 270bhp Evo VIII can do 0 to 60 mph in 4.8 seconds and is electronically limited to 156mph.

Funnily enough this another saga from Greater Manchester Police.
