Two police drivers were caught on camera in a ‘drag race’ side-by-side in their powerful patrol cars on a suburban road.
The pair are being investigated after two marked police cars were seen lining up before racing off together on both sides of the road.
Householder Ben Phillips caught the pair on a 47-second CCTV clip from his home security camera – and was shocked at the apparent road race.
Mr Phillips, 28, captured the moment clip when one police car reverses to line up next to the other ‘like the drag race in the movie Grease’.
Then it shows the two cars apparently revving up next to each other – before then ‘taking off’ at speed at the same time.

Dyfed-Powys Police said the cars were attending an incident on the Mount Estate on New Year’s Eve
Mr Phillips said the officers were ‘drag racing in a built-up 30mph area’ at the Mount Estate in the seaside town of Milford Haven, Pembrokeshire.
He said: ‘They had been called to an incident on the estate, before reversing out side-by-side. They spoke for 15 seconds then took off side-by-side.
‘It’s a 30mph area, with lots of children around.’
Mr Phillips captured the incident through CCTV footage from his first floor flat just before 4pm in broad daylight.
He said the cars then pulled over – and he went down to the street to challenge the officers about their behaviour.
He said: ‘I went down and said to a sergeant: “It’s one law for you, one law for everyone else”.
‘It’s not right to do that. It should be investigated.’
