Have your say

A woman who reported being followed by a suspicious car with a flashing blue light is disgusted at what she feels was lack of interest by police.

The incident took place just days before a male motorist claims to have been flagged down by a car of a similar description – as reported by the News last week.

Having seen our front-page story, the Penicuik mum, who asked not to be named, got in touch. She said she was driving through Inveresk at around 8.45pm on January 23 when she became aware of a car driving dangerously close behind: “It was so close that I couldn’t see if the blue light was on the top of the car or not.

“I slowed down to let it past but it wouldn’t overtake. When it finally did go past it did so on a bend.

“I waited until I got to Loanhead to call the police. I got put through to a service advisor who couldn’t have been more uninterested. I’m disgusted that the police would not even log the incident.”
