Further reports have been received of the same car being driven dangerously through Portadown earlier in the day.

Inspector Brian Mills said:

“Thankfully the officer and member of the public were not seriously injured but this incident could have been much worse. We are working to establish the identity of the driver of the car and I would ask anyone who can assist us with our enquiries to contact officers at Lurgan on 101 quoting reference number 1139 04/08/19. Alternatively, information can also be provided to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 which is 100% anonymous and gives people the power to speak up and stop crime.”
