Detectives are appealing for witnesses after a car that had been involved in a police chase overturned in Roneo Corner early this morning.

At around 1.33am on Sunday, a black BMW 730D failed to stop for police; it was pursued by two marked police cars.

Approximately two minutes later, the car overturned just outside the Tesco Extra in Roneo Corner.

The three occupants of the car were taken by the London Ambulance Service to an east London hospital.

The 25-year-old driver of the car sustained back injuries. His passengers, a 25-year-old man and a 23-year-old woman, have minor injuries.

Detectives from the Serious Collision Investigation Unit based at Chadwell Heath are investigating.

They would like to speak with anyone who witnessed the car overturn or the moments leading up to it.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the witness appeal line on 020 8597 4874.

There have been no arrests and inquiries continue.

The Directorate of Professional Standards and Independent Police Complaints Commission were informed as is routine.
