Bogus A90 police officer hunted after woman's ordeal

A man who pretended to a female motorist - who was driving with a child - that he was a police officer is being hunted.

The woman pulled over after seeing blue flashing lights on the A90 Aberdeen to Peterhead road near Boddam at about 09:45 on Monday.

She refused to hand over her car after the man claimed it was stolen.

Grampian Police said the man was in a black hatchback, similar to a Ford Focus.

A force spokesperson said: "We're keen to hear from any motorists who were on the A90 at the relevant time and saw this vehicle being driven in such a manner or any other motorists who saw a similar car on that stretch of road."
