BUNGLING police have been left red faced after they were forced to call…the police.

The bizarre incident occurred after a man being questioned on suspicion of impersonating a friend to get a driving licence attempted to flee a police station in Malaga.

The ensuing chase through the building caused such panic among staff that – incredibly – the police were called.

It later emerged they believed an armed assault was taking place.
