A man from Corby has been accused of attempted GBH after an incident which saw a police car rammed in Rothwell.

Police received reports of a stolen Audi RS from Cold Ashby on Friday morning (February 26) and it was later found in Corby and recovered.

They then identified a BMW in Rothwell which they suspected was linked to the crime and blocked it in.

But in the BMW's attempts to escape it rammed a police car and nearly ran over two officers and a police dog, PD Bryn, a spokesman for the force said.

Police said it failed to stop in Squires Hill and later crashed in Moorfield Road after a pursuit.

Nobody was injured in the incident, the spokesman said.

Alexander Lundy, aged 44 and of Maidford Road in Corby, has since been charged with seven offences including attempted GBH on two police officers.

He appeared before magistrates on Saturday.
