Thomas Cox, 20, is alleged to have driven along Fishponds Road, in Bristol, on Sunday December 12 and tried to encourage a male motorist to pull over by using blue and red flashing lights. Emergency services in the UK do not use forward-facing red lights.

Avon and Somerset Constabulary said Cox, of Quantock Close in Warmley, has been charged with impersonating a police officer, driving while disqualified and driving without insurance.

He has been released on unconditional bail and is due before Bristol Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday January 11.
