Police are appealing for witnesses who could help identify the owner of a green Citroen which was seen mowing down two police officers on Royston Avenue in Chingford last Monday.

The incident happened at approximately 01.00 on Monday 8 August. The car – registration number Y132 GHJ – turned right on to Chingford Mount Road and right again onto New Road before it was lost. Anyone with information relating to any aspect of the incident is asked to contact the Operation Withern incident room on 020 8345 4142, or, if you would prefer to remain anonymous, you can contact Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
