Three men were arrested in the early hours of this morning after their vehicle collided with two police cars in South Hornchurch.

The suspects were chased by officers following an attempted burglary in a small quiet road in Newham from just after 3am before they were eventually stopped in the collision on Cherry Tree Lane.

They attempted to escape on foot but all were arrested for driving offences alongside attempted burglary.

No injuries were reported in the accident and the men were taken to an east London police station for questioning.

Enquiries are ongoing and the vehicle was seized.
