This video footage showing two police vehicles being rammed has been released by Essex Police, as part of an appeal to find a man wanted in connection with a significant number of burglaries across East Anglia.

The offences at properties in Essex, Cambridgeshire, Suffolk, Hertfordshire, Kent and Norfolk involved cars and other valuables worth more than £500,000 being taken.

The vehicles in these ramming incidents are believed to be used by the same person, who is missing after breaching Crown Court bail conditions.

The CCTV footage shows a marked police motorcycle being rammed, injuring the officer, on the M11 in Cambridgeshire.

And a marked police car also being rammed on the M25 in Hertfordshire.

Anyone with any information on the burglaries in question is asked to contact Essex Police.

Difficult words: footage (video), ram (hit), appeal (request), significant (large), breach (breaking the law), Crown Court (court which deals with serious crimes), bail (release of somebody who might have committed a crime).
