No ‘VIP’ visitor

MOTORISTS may have thought there was a special visitor in Hartlepool when they saw a police cavalcade passing through town.

Several people spotted a Jaguar car with blacked-out windows flanked by several police on motorbikes at about 10.15am yesterday in Hartlepool’s Stockton Street.

But it was not a VIP coming to town – police were taking part in a training exercise aimed at preparing them for any future visits.
