The weekend before last we were woken by banging on the door sometime between 11 pm and midnight. We went downstairs to be confronted by two policemen who said that our car had been speeding on the Oxford East bypass. It then failed to stop and had hit another car escaping. They found the same car parked near our house.
We had been together all evening so knew it wasn’t us, but couldn’t find the keys at first. For some time the police did not believe our account, and thought somebody we knew had used the car.
Watching the video in the police car I could see it was our car make and number plate, but the car in the video was cleaner than ours, and it must have sustained damage hitting the other vehicle. Our car did not appear to have any damage. Then we did find both keys.
Finally the police said they thought somebody had cloned our number plate. They then found the car with the cloned plates in Oxford.
In future I am going to make our car more distinctive so there is no mistaking it.
