A knife and an air rifle were seized by police after a driver fled their vehicle following a police chase in Great Yarmouth.

Great Yarmouth police tweeted on Friday night to say they had been involved in a chase with a silver Audi at about 6pm that evening.

They said “a knife, quantity of cash and an air rifle” were discovered in the vehicle after the driver ran away.

They appealed for information about the incident and asked if any drivers had dashcam footage.

If so, contact 101, quoting CAD 396 of the 17th.
