Gwent Police buy tuk-tuks to battle crime

Italian police have driven Ferraris, American officers Corvettes and in the United Arab Emirates the Bugatti Veyron has been used.

To this list Gwent Police have added their latest weapon in the fight against crime - the mighty tuk-tuk.

The force snapped up four of the three-wheelers to use in Newport and Abergavenny, in Monmouthshire.

It said officers will be using the motorised rickshaws to patrol parks, walkways and elsewhere.

The force has not said how much it spent on the vehicles, which have a top speed of about 55km/h (34 mph).

But one dealer was advertising them online from £10,995.

Most American forces had Mustangs with camaros running a close second but since they started putting Interceptors in Ford Explorers and Rangers that's the route everyone is going in the UK and the States.

I think @Commander CMG  has the Ranger version.

Why does this not surprise me.  Circus clown cars would probably have been more fitting.
