In a post on the Policing Fenland Facebook page, officers said it was “a first” for them.

The post read: “Officers attended a broken down vehicle on the A47 South Brink this afternoon.

“A vehicle had a blow out to one of its tyres and the vehicle couldn’t be moved.

“Officers arrived and were told, ‘I have a new wheel on its way’.

“A short time later a white helicopter arrives carrying a new wheel which was then changed.

“We see lots of different things in this job, but this is a first.”
