Radar base blamed for breakdowns
- Cars develop electrical faults near RAF base
- Engines cut out, lights fail
- MoD investigating claims
Motorists are pointing the finger of suspicion at an RAF radar station in Norfolk for a series of vehicle breakdowns.
Cars travelling westbound past RAF Trimingham on the north Norfolk coast have recently have had their engines cut out, speedometers go haywire and lights fail.
A radar system operating on the same frequency as car immobilisers has been blamed for the electrical failures, and the Ministry of Defence is investigating.
'We are aware of claims that the remote radar head may be interfering with car immobilisers and we are investigating,' a MoD spokeswoman confirmed.
Most of the problems are said to have been fixed by disconnecting and then reconnecting the battery.
