Update: man arrested in connection with attempted murder of police.
A 31-year-old man has been arrested in connection with a hit-and-run on police officers during riots. This follows on from the CCTV footage which was released earlier this week which showed the pair being struck by a green Citroen travelling at high speed in Waltham Forest, North-East London. One of the officers was struck so hard his body armour came off.
The man reportedly handed himself into a police station in East London and is currently awaiting questioning. Detectives investigating the attempted murder of the policemen said the footage was released in order to encourage people to come forward and identify those responsible.
