The incident happened in Ockley Road on Saturday (September 16) afternoon, leaving ‘considerable damage’ to several vehicles, police said.

According to police, a grey Vauxhall Astra was approached by officers on foot on Ockley Road after the occupants of the vehicle were thought to be acting suspiciously, suspected to be dealing drugs.

When the driver of the vehicle spotted the officers, he reversed the Astra into another car and collided with other vehicles before leaving the area.

Police have received two reports of car damage in relation to this incident, a spokesman said.
