Police Interceptors is back once again in Durham and Cleveland. Featuring some of the most insightful and entertaining observational police work ever captured on camera, Police Interceptors shows you what life is really like for the cops who work hard to keep our streets safe and crime free.
Liam Sewell plays a pitch-black game of hunt the knife in the aftermath of a terrifying armed robbery; Dog handler Mo Rashad deals with a double fire before arresting a man who appears to be robbing a phone box.
Plus a deluded motorist picks up the phone and calls the police, to report interceptor Chris Green for stealing his car.
A crash involving a car and a motorbike requires Liam Sewell’s skills to track down the car driver, who decides to kick off and relieve himself in the custody suite, and Paul “Jacko” Jackson and the team box in a van carrying large quantities of cannabis.
Plus, sparks fly when dog handler Justin Moffitt and police dog Elsa capture two burglars on a building site.
Dog handler Mo Rashad is called to a mansion in Hartlepool to look for potential hideaways. He doesn’t uncover any bodies but he does come across one of the biggest marijuana seizures Cleveland Police have ever made. Also, Jacko tackles an angry mob of drinkers after taking down a dodgy scooter driver right outside a pub; and Mark Sheppard deals with a drink driver who’s covered in blood after going head first through his windscreen.
Plus, Spike and Pete Tate stop a speedy motor whose driver talks even quicker than he drives.
Spike and Pete Tate make a surprise stop on an unsuspecting heroin dealer, Liam and the team make a shocking discovery when bag of crack cocaine, cash and a knife is found on a 14 year old lad, and Lee Wilson is taken for an on and off road high speed pursuit in Stockton.
Plus, Paul ‘Jacko’ Jackson and Simon Kestle tackle a drug driver wearing a balaclava.
Meanwhile, timing is everything, as Liam Sewell locks up a rogue biker with the help of patience, pepper spray and a heroic passer-by.
Pete Tate does his best Usain Bolt impression to catch a driver fleeing a crash, while Liam is back on patrol, investigating a shocking burglary, in which thieves ripped a boiler off the wall and flooded two flats with water and gas.
Plus, Bully and Jacko deal with the same man for separate offences. Bully discovers drugs stashed in the suspect’s walking aid before Jacko seizes his car a week later.
In tonight’s show, Interceptors Liam Sewell and Ben Sutcliffe make an early hour dash to catch a team of late night burglars and one of the suspects treats Liam to a face full of saliva.
Paul ‘Jacko’ Jackson and Simon Kestle are in pursuit of a car round the streets of Ferryhill, but the youth behind the wheel is driving it like a stolen car out of Grand Theft Auto. The lad legs it, but it’s not the Interceptors that make the arrest.
Plus, Spike tails two suspected burglars in the unmarked Beemer before making a back street stop; Jacko and rookie, Rachael Bennett lose, then find a drunk driver on the streets of Shildon, and Liam’s sniffer dog Louie uncovers large amounts of cash and drugs following an armed raid.
For the first time ever in Police Interceptors history, we show a pursuit filmed from the suspect’s perspective! As a fleeing Vauxhall Astra hammers the streets north of Hartlepool at more than 100 miles per hour through busy lunchtime traffic, a passenger films from inside while hurling abuse at the pursuing police officer – before the driver reverse rams the car and forces the pursuit to be called off. But it doesn’t end there – the driver later robs a supermarket at knife point, forcing a huge manhunt.
Plus, Liam Sewell and his sniffer dog Louie take part in the search of a house which uncovers thousands of pounds of cash and nearly half a million pounds worth of Class A drugs; Lee Wilson stops a van with a faulty brake light only to discover its driver is even more damaged due to smoking cannabis; and Spike brings along a canine companion in a bid to catch the driver of a car believed to be stolen in a 2 in 1 burglary
And a 999 call causes firearms officers to rush to the town of Guisborough at 11pm on a Friday night – the caller claims a man with a shotgun is walking round the town threatening to kill people. Liam Sewell and his dog Titan are first to catch the suspect – but then things take an interesting turn….
