A car is to be forensically examined after it was seized by police officers in Sheffield following a series of incidents.

The silver Vauxhall Corsa has rammed a police car in the past and has been seen being driven 'erratically' and on pavements and grass verges at speed.

It was seized by officers who spotted it on Stradbroke Road, Stradbroke.

The car was empty at the time but tests will be carried out to help police establish who has used it.

A South Yorkshire Police spokesman said: "This vehicle has been driving erratically in the area for the past few weeks, driving on pavements on grass verges and at speed.

"It has made off from officers a few times and even rammed a police vehicle, but we finally managed to get hold of it on Monday night when two eagle eyed officers spotted it on Stradbroke Road.

"Unfortunately there was no one with the car, but the vehicle will now go and be forensically tested and soon someone will be getting a knock on the door.

"The streets are a little safer now."
Anyone with any information about who has been driving the car, which has the registration number V535 ERR, should call South Yorkshire Police on 101.

Information can also be passed to Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555111.
