Are the "Sandford Police" in the U.K. looking for information on the identity of the driver of a red car allegedly committing a "Dangerous Driving offence" by stopping for a three-legged dog crossing the street and having a motorcycle smash into them? No, that's not true: The "Sandford Police" Twitter account that posted the call for information is satirical.

Identity of the driver of the red car in this footage is required

Here is a screenshot of what the tweet looked like at the time of writing:
Englands smallest Police Farce, committed to catching crinimals & swans
Don't report crime
Emergency? Yes📞999 | No📞101
Lead Stories was unable to determine where the video originated from but it is definitely not the U.K. as the cars in the video clearly drive on the right with the steering wheel on the left.
As DC Mike Hunt of the Sandford Police advises:
