A former police constable, turned television presenter and car builder, Ant Anstead presents a lively history of the British police service’s relationship with the car, from chasing pioneer motorists on bicycles and the realization that they needed to be quicker than the offenders, to the high-spec supercars in use today. Anstead traces the car’s changing role in policing but, as a self-confessed petrol-head, his emphasis is on the cars, whether Morris Minor panda cars or Subaru Impreza Turbos.
