There is an apology to drivers in Launceston after a stinger device fell out of the back of a police car and damaged tyres.

It happened on Sunday evening as officers responded to an accident.

Three cars ran over it but no-one was hurt.

Devon and Cornwall Police said: "At approximately 5:45pm on Sunday 16 February a single vehicle collision occurred on the A30 at Tregadillett near to Launceston.

A police unit attended the scene to assist with traffic management. While placing emergency signage at the scene, the stinger device fell from the boot of a police vehicle.

The device was immediately run over by three vehicles, leaving five tyres damaged.

None of the drivers were injured and the Force ensured that all damaged tyres were replaced by a professional roadside tyre replacement service at the scene.

We apologise for any inconvenience and distress caused to the drivers as a result of this unfortunate incident."
