THERE’S a common held belief that it’s a sign you are getting older when police officers start to look younger.

It’s also a sign when you can remember some of the many police vehicles which used to grace East Lancashire’s roads but which are no longer in use.

The Telegraph archive occasionally throws up a surprise packet of pictures and we couldn’t resist bringing you these which were in a n envelope title ‘Police Vehicles - Misc’.

Hopefully you won’t have had to get too close to a police car but they have been an assuring presence on the roads for decades.

So have a look at some of these vehicles and see how many of them you can remember.
