Midlands police forces unite to crack down on car cruising

More than a hundred cars have been targeted by police forces in the West Midlands since February, as part of a major crack down on 'car cruising'.

All four forces - West Midlands, Staffordshire, West Mercia and Warwickshire - have teamed up to tackle the street racing problem under Operation Hercules.

They are confiscating cars and telling insurance companies if cars have been modified.

On Nechells Parkway, Birmingham, last night, one vehicle caught racing had a seven-year-old child inside.
