PHOTOGRAPHS were shared with the paper of a police vehicle stuck on rough ground on the south head of Wick Bay at the weekend.
The police van got stuck fast in boggy ground near Roxburgh Road on Saturday night and was still there on Sunday morning at 8am when the pictures were taken.
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."
