The boys & girls on traffic in the Midlands are getting to play with some brand new toys.

The Central Motorway Police Group which is conglomeration of Staffordshire, West Mercia & West Mids police drives around the areas motorways. They’ll be using seven new Jaguar XFs soon.

    It never ceases to amaze me that the government does not exert more pressure to buy British.
