VIDEO: Police car & motorbike rammed by on the run couple
Detectives investigating a string of burglaries across Essex and the East have released video footage of two police vehicles being rammed in separate incidents.
It's thought the driver in both cases is 23 year-old Luke Wall from Stanford le Hope who failed to appear in court in connection with the break-ins.
Wall is known to be travelling with his partner Teresa Connors 20, who is also wanted for breaching court bail conditions for burglary offences.
A Cambridgeshire Police motorcyclist was hurt in one of the incidents on the M11 in June while another officer narrowly escaped injury in a separate incident on the M25.
DCI Paul Maleary of Essex Police told us: "We need to trace these two people urgently.
"Extensive enquiries have been carried out across the UK but Wall and Connors appear to be always on the move. However, we believe they are currently somewhere in East Anglia."
Anyone who sees them should call 999 immediately.
