Moped driven at police officers

Police are appealing for help after a moped was driven at two officers in Hither Green.

The incident occurred as police on motorbikes were queuing in traffic on Brownhill Road. Police state that the moped “sped up and drove directly at the officer, knocking him to the ground whereby his own bike landed on his right leg, causing injuries”.

The moped sped off but hit a lorry. The driver was caught but the passenger escaped. The moped had earlier been stolen.

Anyone with information is asked to call them on 0208 284 8365 or 101 quoting CAD 7403/01 August. To remain anonymous call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111
