A video (scroll down) has been shared on social media of the moment when a group of males in a car film themselves as they flee from the police in Stratford, east London.
In the 44 second video, uploaded by @thestreetblogs, a male driving an Audi can be seen driving dangerously as he tries to make off from the police.
The male filming pans his camera to the rear window of the car, where an unmarked police vehicle can be seen with its blues lights and sirens activated.
At one point, it would appear that the male driving the fleeing Audi tries to carry out a handbrake turn, but he ends up colliding with the street furniture, as indicated by the loud bang that can be heard from inside the car.
The driver of the Audi continues to try and make off from the police, overtaking members of the public on the wrong side of the road as he does so.
However, it isn’t long before the reckless driver loses control of the Audi, and he ends up coming to a stop after hitting some railings.
The footage then shows police talking to several males who were detained following the pursuit.
Meanwhile, elsewhere in London, the Met’s Territorial Support Group (TSG) conducted a road traffic stop in Harrow during the early hours of Friday morning (17th).
During the subsequent search of a vehicle, officers located a large knife, stab vest and a balaclava.
