A police officer was hit by an unmarked police car while chasing suspected criminals.

Police conducting an anti-robbery operation had been chasing five people in a vehicle after they failed to stop when requested.

Their car pulled up on Rowan Road and they got out and ran away on foot.

In the commotion, the female officer was seen running to the boot of her car when a black unmarked car arrived.

The driver appeared to brake too slowly and carried on going – eventually hitting the woman who was momentarily crushed between the two cars.

She’s seen yelling and screaming and hopping on one foot before being helped to the floor by colleagues.

The Met has confirmed she was taken to hospital where she received treatment for her injuries which are not thought to be life-threatening.

The five suspects were apprehended and arrested on suspicion of robbery, the force added.
