A woman has been charged with dangerous driving after a Derbyshire police car was damaged by another vehicle.

The car, with an officer at the wheel, was parked in Peveril Road, Tibshelf, in the early hours of Sunday when it was damaged in the incident.

Shortly afterwards a suspect vehicle was found in Derwent Drive and a man was arrested in nearby fields.

A woman was later charged with driving while disqualified, dangerous driving and driving without insurance.

She was also charged with failing to provide a sample and possession of cannabis.

She is due to appear before magistrates in Chesterfield later.

The man was arrested on suspicion of possessing cannabis and was released on bail pending further enquiries.

The police officer is not reported to have been hurt.
