A man has been arrested after a police chase ended with a car crashing through a front garden's wall in Romford.

A Metropolitan Police spokeswoman confirmed officers patrolling the Gallows Corner area at 4.30am on Tuesday, May 1, reported spotting a car driving at speed and indicated for it to stop.

The driver of the vehicle did not stop and an authorised pursuit then began that ended in Mawney Road, Romford, when the car attempting to flee allegedly ploughed through the wall of a home’s front garden.

The driver, a man aged 28, was arrested at the scene on suspicion of failing to stop for police, dangerous driving and being unfit to drive through drink or drugs.

He was taken to an east London hospital for treatment before being released into police custody.

A female passenger in the car was spoken to by officers - she was not arrested.

Enquiries continue.
