Following a short pursuit, the vehicle stopped and police arrested two men at the scene. Residents reported seeing various police cars chasing a red Peugeot down Boxmoor Road.

One man, in his 40s, has been arrested on suspicion of dangerous driving, failing to stop for police, driving while disqualified and for driving while under the influence of drugs.

A second man, in his 30s, was arrested for possession of an offensive weapon, say Metropolitan Police.

Both men have been taken to an east London police station where they remain at this time.
