ITV1: Thursday 25 October

Police Camera Action
Thursday 25 October 2007 10:00pm – 10:30pm on ITV1.

Police Camera Action is back with a new series featuring some of the most shocking driving and outrageous police chases captured on police cameras from Bedfordshire to Kentucky.

Programme Five focuses on customised cars with Alastair Stewart and Adrian Simpson investigating when radical design becomes radically dangerous.

Adrian attends the Ace Cafe London car meet with City of London Police Sergeant Andy Birks to demonstrate the five most dangerous and illegal car modifications. He explains that, while staff at the Ace Café are able to monitor and control the behaviour of those within the meet, the same does not apply to the road outside.

However, not all customised cars are hazards. Footage shows an already rare Lamborghini Gallardo, which the Italian State Police have modified to enable it to both record dangerous driving and keep organs destined for transplant recipients cool at 196 miles per hour.

Police in Befordshire are called in to break up an impromptu car cruise on a roundabout and Cambridgeshire Police Officers explain how over-tinted windows can be potentially deadly.

Police Camera Action is an Optomen Television Production for ITV1, produced and directed by Sarah Williams. The executive producer is Simon Walton.
