A door fell off a police van and landed in the road during a routine patrol in the early hours of New Year’s Day in Bideford, Devon.
The van was making its way up the hill when the side door flew from the left-hand-side of the vehicle.
The door toppled over into the road, smashing the window.
Dashcam owner, Pete Mann said he “couldn’t believe my eyes” as he witnessed the incident.
A spokeswoman for Devon and Cornwall Police said: “In the early hours of Tuesday 1 January, a door from a police van travelling in Bideford became detached and landed in the road.”
