Businessman sues police for crushing his £200,000 Ferrari

A Birmingham businessman is suing West Midlands Police after the force confiscated and then crushed his Ferrari 458 Spider.

Police seized the Ferrari in April 2017 on suspicion it had been stolen. After investigation it was determined that the car was a "Category B" insurance write-off. This is the second most serious category of damage, signifying a car so extensively damaged that the body shell should be crushed, although some parts may be salvaged.
