Right Time, Right Place

Motorway Cops, Series 5 Episode 3 of 7

Motorway cops Matt Hemingway and Aidy Brown are on patrol just outside Leeds when they find themselves in exactly the right place at exactly the right time. Their colleagues need help stopping a stolen car which is getting dangerously close to the city centre - and pursuit-trained officers Matt and Aidy must use all their skills and experience to bring the chase to an end before it gets out of control.

Meanwhile in Bradford, PCs Andy Barron and Lindsey Pickles also find themselves in a deadly pursuit. This time an armed gang, intent on settling an old score, have beaten and dragged a man off the street into their car. It is only when the cops threaten to ram the gang's fleeing car and the victim is rescued that a dramatic story starts to emerge, which leads to a major investigation and the conviction of three dangerous men.

On the other side of Bradford, officers from the Regional Roads Crime team are on the look-out for drug dealers working the area. It is a slow night until a bad piece of driving changes everything. Cops pull over a suspicious looking car and, after quizzing the driver, they get inside his house and discover a cannabis farm capable of supplying a major drugs operation.

Sometimes being in the right place at the right time can lead to some surprising results. When PC Phil Stonebanks stops a suspected stolen truck on the M1 he finds that not everything is quite how it seems.

Back on the A1, Matt Hemingway is out on patrol with officer Debbie Collinson. The two cops head out to a three car smash but find the early morning rush hour traffic is against them and a massive tailback is starting to grow. If Debbie and Matt can not get to the accident and clear the road quickly they will have a major incident on their hands.
