TWO police officers were dragged along by a car as they tried to stop a suspect.

The officers were searching a man’s car for drugs in Old Road, Clacton when he tried to drive off.

They tried to wrestle with the driver through the window of the Audi A6 and it careered into the Shell petrol station.

The officers suffered minor injuries today at 3.30pm, but managed to arrest a man, 40, from Clacton, and a woman, 37, from the Clacton area.
