A car ploughed into two other vehicles during a police chase through London, leaving three people injured.

Police said they were alerted to the car’s movements on Chelsea Bridge Road just after 7.5am on Sunday.

Officers signalled for the car to stop, but the driver allegedly refused to do so and drove off up the road at high speed.

Police cars with their lights and sirens on gave chase and the Met Police helicopter buzzed overhead as the pursuit continued.

Almost an hour later, at 8.42am, the car smashed into another vehicle and a moped in Queenstown Road, Battersea.

Pictures posted on social media showed the road taped off between Lavender Hill and Battersea Park Road.

Other images showed two black sports cars, seriously damaged, blocking the road.

A spokesman for Scotland Yard said:The two suspects in the car have been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder.

“One of the arrested males has been taken to hospital for treatment to a leg injury and will be taken to a west London police station once treatment is complete.

“The occupants of the car and the rider of the moped struck by the suspect vehicle suffered minor injuries. “

The Met's Directorate of Professional Standards and the Independent Police Complaints Commission have been informed as a matter of course.

Anyone with information should call police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
