A man, who wished to remain anonymous, believed the police were in pursuit of suspects in "an old car travelling from Thrumster" when they got bogged down.

However, a Police Scotland spokesperson said: "One of our police vehicles did get stuck in mud in the Trinkie area of Wick on Saturday night.

"It was not involved in any chase and was on routine patrol at the time."
